The Council of Atlantic Premiers announced a new physicians and surgeons registry that is expected to make it easier for doctors to work temporarily in provinces other than where they have a medical licence.

The announcement was made on Monday by Prince Edward Island Premier Dennis King during a meeting in Charlottetown between the four Atlantic premiers.

King said, over the last couple of months, the four provinces have been working on launching the “Registrars of the Atlantic colleges of physicians and surgeons,” which is expected to improve physician mobility within the region and to “cut down on the unnecessary red tape and administrative burden for physicians who want to work within the region and any of our health-care systems.”

Premiers expect the registry to be in place by May 1.
