Health care is often in the news in Nova Scotia. Doctors Nova Scotia’s members are outspoken advocates for improving health care in the province. 

Whether they’re offering an opinion on a medical issue or calling for system reform, Nova Scotian physicians are trusted sources. They are subject matter experts and provide background information and opinions on health care to newspapers, radio and television stations.

In addition, Doctors Nova Scotia receives more than 200 media requests on a broad range of health-care issues every year. By responding to media requests, the association helps Nova Scotians better understand the province’s health-care issues and showcase the physicians who practise in Nova Scotia.
