Province Releases Health Plan

The Province releasing its long-awaited health plan which Health Minister Ted Flemming says will address our health care challenges and provide support for those who want to rebuild their personal health while making a system that will be sustainable for generations.

Over 5 years, the Department of Health will keep working with health system partners to achieve financial sustainability.

In a release, the government says the plan encourages a philosophical shift that put the patient at the centre of care with a bigger emphasis on building a healthier population and more services in the community.

The New Brunswick Cancer Network will work with the two regional health authorities and primary healthcare practitioners to implement screening programs for cervical and colon cancer.
