This week MAHCP launched our new campaign – Fix the Staffing Crisis.
We are urging allied health professionals, family and friends, and concerned people across this province to tell the government they need to fix the staffing crisis.
Rural EMS, diagnostic and lab technologists, respiratory therapists, social workers, alongside many other highly specialized health professionals are a critical part of Manitoba’s health care system. With unsustainable workloads over the past few years combined with wages that are still frozen after over five years without a contract – the longest to-date of any health care contract in Canada – allied health professionals are burnt out and leaving for other provinces and jurisdictions offering hiring incentives, higher wages and better working conditions or leaving their professions altogether.
This cannot continue. You can now add your voice to the growing number of concerned Manitobans and tell the government to fix the staffing crisis by visiting www.mahcp.ca/fixthestaffing crisis.
