We know that lots of rural communities are facing a shortage of doctors, nurse practitioners, and other health care and social service workers that keep communities strong. We believe everyone should have access to primary care.
A re-elected Liberal government will:
- Expand the number of family doctors and primary health teams in rural communities.
- Work to give rural communities greater access to a full suite of health and social services professionals, including dentists, pharmacists, dental hygienists, midwives, social workers, psychologists, teachers, and early childhood educators.
- Help health care professionals set up new practices.
