Members of SEIU-West will join community groups and Wakaw residents on a road trip to the legislature as they further their combined efforts to save the Wakaw hospital.
The group intends to share their concerns with the Health Minister. Wakaw is yet another rural hospital to be targeted for closure due to a shortage of doctors. This will affect a number of communities in the area and force people to travel longer distances to receive emergency care when time is of the essence.
SEIU-West represents approximately 11,000 health care providers working in four (4) health regions across Saskatchewan.
