This week, the provincial government announced a new plan to make health care more accessible to Manitobans. Manitoba’s Clinical and Preventative Services Plan was developed over 18 months and included the input of thousands of frontline health care providers and about 300 clinical leaders. The goal is to decentralize health care from Winnipeg, putting it closer to the province’s residents.
Along with the announcement, the province said they’ll invest $2 billion into the health care system in the next four years. This includes $250 million for initiatives identified by clinical leaders.
