Video: Peterborough town hall meeting on proposed hospital cuts

The Peterborough Health Coalition hosted a town hall meeting June 3rd to invite members of the public to address the first draft of the regional hospital’s fiscal restraint plan. Given the Orwellian title of a “Hospital Improvement Plan,” the “HIP” calls for closure of 20 beds, the elimination of 171 jobs, and consolidation of services at the new site. Featured speakers included Roy Brady (Peterborough Health Coalition), Natalie Mehra (Ontario Health Coalition) and Michael Hurley (OCHU). Marion Burton from OPSEU also spoke.
