Election: Doctors Bring Health Care To Forefront

Doctors Nova Scotia wants to bring health care to the forefront during the election campaign. The association is focusing on four key areas in the lead-up to the October 8th vote. President Dr. Mike Flemming says they include ensuring everyone has a family doctor, reducing wait times along with investing in programs and health services. The group has launched a website to support health-care advocacy during the campaign. The website shares the responses of the three main political parties on key health-care questions and can be found by clicking here. The group is also encouraging people to speak with their local candidates about health care.
