Amanda Lathlin Addresses Decline in Healthcare to the Provincial Legislature

The Pas MLA Amanda Lathlin Addressed the Manitoba legislature recently on the decline of health care services in Northern Manitoba. Lathlin stated that since the current provincial government took office they slashed 10 million dollars from The Northern Regional Health Authority, canceled plans for a primary care clinic in The Pas, and the obstetrics department in Flin Flon has closed, leaving pregnant woman unsure of how and where they will deliver their babies.

 

She added that these cuts are depriving northern Manitobans of the same level of services as their southern counterparts and also brought up the provincial governments plan to privatize life flight an emergency air ambulance service for northern patients which could mean that profits could come before the needs of patients.

 

Lathlin believes the provincial government needs to listen to Northern Manitobans and doctors working on the front lines and stop the privatization of life flight.
