Statement on Income Stabilization

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you are aware, the most recent President’s update by Dr. Sohail Gandhi outlined some of the progress on pandemic-related negotiations.

There has been a significant amount of concern among physicians – including many of my physiatrist constituents – who are actively facing economic uncertainty as a result of lockdown measures.

In response to the Dr. Gandhi’s update, I initiated a petition that garnered over 500 signatures and led to the urgent virtual town hall to be held on Wednesday April 15th. There is also a Chairs meeting on Tuesday April 14th.

Urgent OMA Townhall – Income Stabilization

I look forward to learning more about the board and ntf’s decision making process and rationale.

As I have said before, our organization should be one that truly has our backs. We need it to advocate on behalf of all physicians, most especially during times of crisis like now.

I encourage you all to participate in the townhall and to make sure physicians are provided both safety and the means to continue providing excellent care to our patients across the province.
