Amanda Lathlin Addresses The Pas Clinic and the Flin Flon Hospital Issues During Question Period

Amanda Lathlin addressed the cancellation of a clinic for The Pas and the closing of the obstetrics department of the hospital in Flin Flon last week during question period in the Manitoba legislature.


Lathlin stated that the current clinic has been closed for half of the month due to under staffing, forcing patients to go to St Anthony’s emergency room for treatment.


She added that the current government is also forcing expectant mothers that were expected to give birth in Flin Flon to travel to The Pas due to the closure of the obstetrics department in the Flin Flon hospital.


She asked if the minister would stop undermining the public access to health care in Northern Manitoba and restore birth delivery services in Flin Flon and give the Town of The Pas a clinic.


Minister of Health Cameron Friesen did not directly answer Lathlins question stated quote “these decisions are made by physicians and administrators for the preservation of clinical safely.
