BACKGROUND: The provincial government is to provide more money to the Northern Health Authority to beef up physician services in the emergency room at Mills Memorial Hospital.
Doctors who then want to work in the ER will be paid a salary for their shifts as opposed to the traditional fee-for-service model of doctors who maintain their own offices and clinics.
There are already physicians working in the ER either full time or part time under what’s called the Alternate Payments Program but adding more money is intended to be a “recruiting incentive and stabilizing force,” says Northern Health official Eryn Collins.
One hope is that doctors attracted to emergency medicine might work a set number of shifts and also maintain a practice outside the ER, she said.
