IN THE NEWS-Victoria News- NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and MP Gord Johns talks health care with experts in Qualicum Beach

The federal NDP leader and Courtenay-Alberni MP Gord Johns were in Qualicum Beach Tuesday (Jan 24) for a roundtable meeting of experts on seniors health care. Johns said the roundtable included health professionals, as well as people with lived experience in the health-care system. 

Johns said he and Singh head "loud and clear" from the experts that there is a "significant need" for retention, recruitment and support of health-care workers, including more supports for students who are studying in Canada to become doctors and nurses. 

"Good care comes when hospitals and long-term care homes are properly staffed", said Johns. "The most important way to improve health care is more health-care workers"
