BRACEBRIDGE– Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner joined candidate for Parry Sound–Muskoka, Matt Richter today for a rally in downtown Bracebridge where he announced that Ontario Greens will increase the variety of Nurse Practitioner-led clinics within the North, including 3 specifically in Parry Sound–Muskoka.
“Ontario Greens have real solutions for Parry Sound–Muskoka,” Schreiner said.
“Primary health care options like Nurse Practitioner-led clinics are top-of-the-line ways to alleviate the burden on hospitals, cut wait times and ensure higher access to quality health care.”
Nurse Practitioners play a very essential role in rural regions and have the knowledge, competencies, and adaptability to satisfy a lot of roles throughout the health-care system.
Richter recently returned from his Going Green Riding Tour, where he visited 16 communities across Parry Sound–Muskoka over the course of 4 days, travelling in his fully electric campaign automobile.
“Green momentum across Parry Sound–Muskoka is surging,” Richter said on the rally to a crowd of supporters.
“It was so great to fulfill with residents from across the riding and talk in regards to the real solutions that Greens should make life more caring, inexpensive and healthy.”
The three Nurse Practitioner-led clinics in Parry Sound Muskoka might be funded by an initial investment of $5 million. This is a component of a broader plan to expand Nurse Practitioner-led clinics across the province. The Ontario Green plan also would invest $51 million to extend the variety of Nurse Practitioners across the province by 50% by 2030.
Schreiner will announce the Ontario Greens’ full Platform for the North tomorrow morning in North Bay:
Location: 176 Lakeshore Dr. Suite 10A P1A2A8, North Bay, Ontario
