Minister needs to restore confidence in health system after IWK Expense Scandal

Statement by MLA Tammy Martin

HALIFAX – Tammy Martin, NDP Health and Wellness spokesperson, made the following statement on the ongoing expense scandal at the IWK Hospital:

“The thousands of Nova Scotians who are waiting for family doctors, facing long waitlists for mental health, or worried about local services closing, are already losing faith in the management of our health care system.
With the CFO of the IWK going on paid leave, and the Board of Directors reaching out to the Auditor General for further investigations, what is the Minister of Health doing to ensure our health care system is not mismanaged?”
