No Relief, No Trust: Sask. Party delivers no cost-of-living relief in election-year budget

BECK: The party that broke our schools and hospitals can’t be trusted to fix them 

REGINA - Today, the Sask. Party released an election-year budget that includes zero new measures to help make life more affordable for working families, despite Saskatchewan people reporting that rising costs are their number one concern. The budget also presented relatively few new ideas to transform the way healthcare is delivered in Saskatchewan at a time when the health system needs wide-scale reform.

MEDICAL SERVICES REPORT: SK down 14 GPs since Scott Moe took office

Majority of Sask.-trained specialists leaving province after graduation

REGINA - Today, the Saskatchewan NDP responded to the Medical Services Branch Annual Statistical Report for 2022-23. While other provinces make big gains, Saskatchewan is losing family doctors, gynecologists, diagnostic radiologists and other specialists at an alarming rate. Graduate retention rates also show that medical specialists trained in Saskatchewan are more likely to leave the province after completing their education than to stay.
