Quebec Needs To Hire More Doctors For Quality Healthcare

There are many problems in the health care system of the Quebec Government and the opposition parties are attacking them for the lack of commitment towards health care. There are not enough doctors to offer quality healthcare service in the province, according to a study. The government should get loose on its control over the medical school admissions.

The opposition party of the Liberals does not have any other reason to attack them. Quebec is enjoying a very good economy and the unemployment rate is the lowest in the country. Hence, they decided to concentrate on the healthcare sector to abuse the government.

This province faces medical and healthcare related issues every day. The doctors in the province say that they are paying too much and the nurses say that they are being burdened with work.

The Health Minister Gaetan Barrette says that there are too many medical students that get graduated and this is why he has cut admissions last summer.

Patrick Dery from the Montreal Economic Institute says that the province needs to end its medical school quota and appoint more doctors. The decision of Barrette is not a wise one according to Dery as Quebec lacks medical practitioners.

There would be a larger workforce to fill the vacant positions once the number of doctors is increased.
