Peterborough letter: Why near Minden’s unexpected emergency clinic?

I are living in Minden and recently it was declared that our minor clinic/unexpected emergency clinic will be closing on June 1. We had listened to in advance of that they were being taking into consideration this shift but it under no circumstances came to fruition until now.

Moreover it was announced that this will be lasting and we would have to go to Haliburton or Lindsay for health care treatment. Haliburton Highlands Wellness Providers CEO Carolyn Plummer states that they can’t get staffing and have to pay back nurses from businesses and the charge is prohibitive.

Minden has the premier quantity of seniors per capita in the province and far more seniors are coming to retire below all the time. Quite a few came below simply because the crisis provider is near by.

How can Premier Doug Ford enable this to come about although he is paying out billions of pounds to transfer the Ontario Science Centre, billions more to create a freeway nobody needs and is making a health care clinic by his cottage?

Inspite of all that shelling out, he cannot manage to retain our tiny healthcare facility open up.

This closure is the tip of the iceberg — closing this healthcare facility is indicative of what previous premier Mike Harris did when he was in office environment and the purpose our wellness care is in so significantly trouble by now. If you never think this is the starting of privatization of our wellbeing treatment, consider once more.

The federal govt gave the provinces extra revenue for health treatment — was it to shut down hospitals?

Be sure to assistance us to help you save our well being treatment!
