NB Health Minister Dorothy Shephard

The Health Department is looking for your input on the current challenges facing our health care system and how the future of health care in the province should unfold.

Health Minister Dorothy Shephard will hold a virtual town hall tour that will include six communities impacted by proposed changes to hospital hours last year. She wants to hear from medical professionals – community leaders – and the public. There will be separate sessions held for First Nations communities – front line health care workers – and professional associations. Details on the engagement tour schedule will be available soon.

A discussion paper has been drafted and is available here. You can share your feedback by emailing healthplansante@gnb.ca with feedback received being factored into the development of a new five year provincial health plan.
