FREDERICTON (GNB) – In preparation for a provincial engagement tour, the Department of Health has created a discussion paper outlining the province’s current health-care challenges and the vision for what a sustainable health-care system could look like.
“In my short time as minister, one thing has become very clear to me: the demands being placed on our health-care system and on the people working in it are extraordinary,” said Health Minister Dorothy Shephard. “I am committed to creating a better health-care system and to listening to any and all ideas about how that can be accomplished.”

New Brunswickers are encouraged to share their feedback on the questions posed in Striving for Dependable Public Health Care: A discussion paper on the future of health care in New Brunswick by emailing healthplansante@gnb.ca. The feedback received will be factored into the development of a new five-year provincial health plan.
