Family Doctors - Another Broken NDP Promise

In a 2010 throne speech, Greg Selinger’s NDP government promised that anyone who wanted a family doctor would have one by 2015.

Then, in November of 2015, Health Minister Sharon Blady quietly amended this promise.  

The government changed its target so that people who can access nurse practitioners would count as having had that commitment fulfilled!

Just another broken promise from the Manitoba NDP.

A new Progressive Conservative government will get more doctors in Manitoba by establishing a Physician Recruitment and Retention program for Winnipeg and rural communities in the province.
