NDP: Get back to the drawing board on surgical backlog plan

Experts, health sector partners need a seat at the table to create a plan that works

REGINA - In light of many in the Saskatchewan medical community voicing concerns over the Sask. Party’s recently announced surgical backlog plan, Official Opposition Leader Ryan Meili is calling on the provincial government to start over and bring together experts, health sector leadership and impacted stakeholders to create a plan that expands capacity in our public health system. 

“No one except Scott Moe and Paul Merriman thinks this plan will work. There are tens of thousands of people across Saskatchewan suffering as they wait for care. They can’t afford to have this government fail to get the surgery plan right,” said Meili. “We need to listen to the growing concerns from the experts and medical community and bring those voices to the table to craft a plan that will actually work.”
