Hospital services in Big River will be closed down temporarily next week.


The local health centre has been serviced for the past few weeks by one doctor and he will be unavailable from August 28th to September 1st for personal reasons.


Prince Albert Parkland Health Authority spokesman Doug Dahl says other arrangements are being made, including the notification of doctors in Spiritwood and Prince Albert.


Dahl adds the other physician for Big River has been away since June, but is expected to return in September.
