Health science professionals must be considered in BC plan to restart elective surgeries

Today's public briefing by Premier John Horgan and Health Minister Adrian Dix was short on details about how shortages and chronic challenges in recruitment and retention of health science professionals will be addressed in the plan.

HSA has been advocating for several weeks that the plan must include all  members of the healthcare team, including specialized health science professionals.

See HSA's letter to the Ministry of Health on re-opening non urgent/emergent surgeries, screening, and testing here.

The government's May 7 plan is available here.
