Improving Access to Health Care in Cape Breton

Your Liberal Government is honouring our commitment to improving access to primary health care for thousands of people in communities across Cape Breton with the recruitment of 16 new doctors.

Five new doctors started in Cape Breton in July, with 11 more set to start over the next six months. Four are family doctors and 12 are specialists including psychiatry, radiology and emergency. This will mean better local access and shorter wait times.

Our work is not finished, there are also 10 more site visits scheduled this summer for doctors who have expressed interest in Cape Breton area.

“It’s great to see business and community leaders working closely with Nova Scotia Health Authority to show doctors how attractive life in Cape Breton can be,” said Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey. “It’s an example of what we can accomplish when we work together to strengthen our communities.”

Your Liberal government continues to make doctor recruitment a priority in Cape Breton, and across Nova Scotia.

“It’s great to see business and community leaders working closely with Nova Scotia Health Authority to show doctors how attractive life in Cape Breton can be,” said Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey. “It’s an example of what we can accomplish when we work together to strengthen our communities.”

As Liberals, we know health care is important. That’s why we are committed to improving access to care where and when Nova Scotians need it. We’re looking forward to welcoming more doctors to our province and investing in the quality care that Nova Scotians want and deserve.
