CARP members speak, Health Minister listens

In this weeks poll, we asked members which health care policy issues were the most important for the federal and provincial governments to deal with. Leading the pack by far was “funding/training more family doctors” with 35%, more than twice as high as any other issue.

Well, last Wednesday, Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced $40 million for training family doctors for rural Canada. Read all about it here.

Now, we’re not saying the Health Minister saw our poll, and, after all, this isn’t even new money, it was announced in last year’s budget, but, still, it’s nice to be listened to, isn’t it?
