The provincial government released a little info yesterday on it’s plan to battle hospital wait times. Premier Brian Gallant announced $25 million in funding to be spent in the next year to help hire family doctors & nurses and in some other areas that might take some of the pressure off of the hospital system. Not many other details though…Gallant said more info would be released in the coming weeks. The NB department of health budget is at an all time high…$2.75 billion this year…but thousands don’t have family doctors…emergency rooms are a mess…and it can take years to see specialists and get into surgery.
