Community Meeting Tour

Doctors Nova Scotia will tour the province and meet with physicians in up to 22 different communities

Members want Doctors Nova Scotia (DNS) in communities, meeting with doctors – and we’re on our way.

Through various surveys, community meetings, email correspondence, phone calls and strategic meetings, members have communicated an immediate need for improved outreach and representation from DNS.

In response, the DNS senior leadership team and Board of Directors will be hosting a series of meetings with physicians in up to 22 communities across the province.

Our goal is to listen to members as they talk about the unique challenges and issues facing their communities and what kind of support they expect from DNS. Each meeting will include a short (less than 15 minutes) presentation, with the rest of the time dedicated to listening to you.
We hope you’ll take this opportunity to meet with Board members and staff from DNS. What we hear in communities will directly inform the new community outreach model being implemented with the new strategic plan.

Meetings will take place in May and June 2017. A light meal and beverages will be included for each meeting.
