The NDP is raising concerns about surgery wait times in Saskatchewan.
Opposition leader Ryan Meili says in less than 3 years, the number waiting over 3 months for surgery has grown by 7 thousand people.
“That’s over 5 times as many people who are waiting in 2015. There’s 4500 more people waiting more than 6 months for their surgery. People in pain, not being able to work and having a diminished quality of life. Mr. Speaker, that’s 10 times as many people than those who are waiting in 2015.” said Meili.
But Premier Scott Moe says the province has invested heavily in health care and introduced private surgery clinics.
