NSFM members recognize that without easy access to health care, communities suffer. Health care services is complex and governments everywhere are struggling with this issue.
NSFM has a representative on the Nova Scotia Health Authority’s Recruitment and Retention Advisory Committee, which began meeting in January, 2018. Through this committee, NSFM is identifying ways in which it can assist municipalities with this issue. In addition, NSFM is working with this group to offer a one-day workshop highlighting the role municipalities can play in recruiting and retaining physicians in their areas.
