A Summit will Focus on Rural and Northern Physician Shortages.

Doctors Manitoba in conjunction with the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce will convene a stakeholder summit this fall to assess rural and northern Manitoba Physician shortages. 


The summit to be held September 21st in Portage La Prairie will bring together a variety of health, economic development and community leaders to review current challenges, examine physician recruitment and retention best practices from within Manitoba and from other Canadian jurisdictions, participate in facilitated discussions and build consensus about the actions and strategies needed to attract and retain more doctors in rural and northern Manitoba.


Chambers President Chuck Davidson notes their members told them in a recent survey that health care system recovery and investment is their top concern because accessible, reliable and efficient care enables Manitobans to flourish wherever they reside while ensuring the region is attractive to potential new residents and investment.  Follow up steps will include the development of a formal report for the consideration of government and health care system representatives as well as information to be shared with municipalities, rural and northern hospitals, community leaders and media.
