Dr. ***

Dear Dr. ***:

RE: Practice Enhancement Program – Assessment / Reassessment Results

The committee of the Practice Enhancement Program of Saskatchewan has given

lengthy consideration to the results of your practice assessment conducted on ***

and

the recent reassessment of your practice conducted on ***. The committee had

extensive deliberations about the results of your assessment before reaching our

conclusion.

We regret to inform you that we found widespread and significant deficiencies in

your practice. These are so pervasive and severe that we have concluded that your

practice represents a significant threat to the safety and well being of the citizens of

Saskatchewan. Thus we assigned to your practice a Category 3 designation.

According to the bylaws of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan,

the authority under which the Practice Enhancement Program of Saskatchewan

operates, PEP is obliged when we think we have found very serious performance

deficiencies in practice to assign a Category 3 classification and to inform the College

of Physicians and Surgeons of this finding. Thus we inform you by this letter that we

are also writing on behalf of the Practice Enhancement Program to the Registrar of

the College of Physicians and Surgeons. You will hear from the College in due course

and they will undertake with you the further assessments or requirements for practice

enhancement that are concluded to be appropriate.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. B. W. Laursen,

George D. Carson, M.D., FRCSC
