Provincial Assistance is Being Requested Regarding Local Health Staffing Issues.

In January local resident Gail Baker sent a letter to Northern Health Region CEO Helga Bryant regarding the departure of Physician Assistant Jan Drutz from the Flin Flon Clinic. Bryant replied explaining he no longer had a physician supervisor and was thereby no longer licenced by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Manitoba. 


In a follow up letter last week Baker again requested Bryant attend an information meeting to discuss this issue and noted a petition circulated in Flin Flon against his departure obtained 900 signatures in two weeks.

Baker is forwarding information to the Region’s Board of Directors, the Premiers and Health Ministers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Mayor and Council and MLA Tom Lindsey asking them to investigate this situation as well as other issues she raised about staffing in local health care facilities.
