In the public meetings that I have held in various communities in Manitoba, the need for excellent telehealth service has come up often. In Boissevain, they do not even have any telehealth service, and they would like to have telehealth service. I asked the Minister of Health about this on Monday April 16 in Estimates. The exchange below is from Hansard.
Mr. Gerrard: One of the other issues that I heard in Boissevain very clearly is that they would like to have telehealth access in Boissevain. This doesn't seem an unreasonable request, and I would ask the minister to look into and see if there could be telehealth station provided at Boissevain.
Mr. Goertzen: I will ensure that that comment gets provided to Shared Health with–which is doing some of the examination around telehealth. I mean, I think it's a fair comment, and I know those sort of things have been raised by the representative for that area in terms of looking at technology. The member reinforces that, but I–it's not the first time I've heard that.
