The president of the Saskatchewan Medical Association is concerned about whether small town physicians are being heard.
That’s one of the topics for the SMA’s Spring Representative Assembly.
Joanne Sivertson says having doctors being in leadership roles in the new health care system with the one health authority is a positive step, but there is also concern that the individual, local physician voice might get lost, and the interest of the patient living outside of the major centres might suffer.
Sivertson says doctors and those in political office need to work together to ensure the needs of all those in the health care system are met.
The Assembly is today (Fri) and tomorrow in Regina. (CKRM)
