Hey Nova Scotia, you've got a new President and CEO of the Nova Scotia Health Authority - and he wants to hear from you to make your health care better!

From CBC News - January 07, 2020:


'We need to hear from people, we need to understand exactly what they're experiencing,' says Dr. Brendan Carr
The new president and CEO of the Nova Scotia Health Authority says feedback from the public will be fundamental in guiding his decisions as he takes on his new role.

"Just three weeks into the job, Dr. Brendan Carr knows he's leading an organization with an image problem, but he's determined to help the province see the successes in the health-care system".

"Carr, who grew up in Sydney River, N.S., returned to the province after stints leading health authorities in British Columbia and Ontario."

"Having been in other places has given me the opportunity to see that a lot of the really nasty challenges that we're facing here are the same issues that are going on in other parts of the country," he said during his first news conference.

First steps in new role

"He'll spend the next few months travelling the province talking to staff and learning about the system. He also wants to hear directly from patients".
