Minister Begins Health Authority Tours

It's a move toward reducing the number of health authorities in Nova Scotia. Health Minister Leo Glavine will begin a province-wide tour Monday. He will meet with board members, executives and other health care personnel to discuss how best to move the process forward. The first meeting with be with South West Health. The goal is to shift to two authorities by 2015-16. It would mean a board for the IWK, and a provincial board, with four regional management zones. Another meeting with South Shore Health will be held February 19. It was a key election promise by the Liberals before they took office in the October election.
