Nova Scotians deserve a strong, unified healthcare system. One that spends less on administration and focuses on front-line care. Over the past four years, we have delivered on that need, with more money than ever going towards hiring doctors, nurse practitioners and other clinicians, and addressing waitlists. However, there is far more work to be done. Like all of the Atlantic provinces, our population is aging, chronic disease rates remain high, and orthopedic wait times continue to be unacceptable. These issues are not fixed overnight. It takes proper planning, targeted investment, and bold leadership. We need to continue to move forward, building on our successes and addressing the challenges.
