Shutting down Quick Care Clinics at the same time as ERs are closing doesn't make sense for patients.
“Our premier made a commitment to protect and invest in public services, and cutting public services like closing ERs is the exact opposite.” — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
“Will this mean paramedics will be driving longer distances to get their patients to hospital, further tying up ambulances for long stretches on the road? How does that help or improve patient care?” — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
"Today, I issue a warning for Albertans. If the Conservative government proceeds with cuts to health care, don't get sick. Don't get old. Don't be born prematurely. Don't expect to get the health care you need and deserve." — Elisabeth Ballermann, HSAA President
