The Manitoba Government introduced a blue print for the next step in a comprehensive overhaul of health care in the province on Friday. Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey says the plan is sketchy on details for the north. He explains everything to do with the north is left really vague that something will happen at some point in time. He adds the part about having regional hubs might be interesting depending if they decide Thompson is going to be the regional hub for the north and that kind of leaves the rest of the north out of luck so we haven’t seen enough of the details to say it’s good for the north and what we’ve seen from this government so fat is really what can we do to reduce costs not provide better service.
Lindsey adds it does talk about increased use of Telehealth which has been talked about in the north but it can’t replace having doctors that people build a relationship with and have a family doctor.
