Doctors Nova Scotia Appealing Court Decision
Doctors Nova Scotia will appeal a Nova Scotia Supreme Court decision allowing government to negotiate directly with doctors.
Justice Robin C. Gogan recognized Doctors NS as the sole bargaining agent for physicians but raised concerns around the scope of their influence.
At issue are Alternative Payment Plans or APPs which allow doctors to work on a salaried or part-time basis.
CEO of Doctors Nova Scotia, Nancy MacCreadie-Williams says since APPs were introduced the relationship between doctors and the province has chilled.
