#MakeTheDealABHealth , #MadeTheDealABHealthNowGetToWorkOnMentalHealth-----Talks in December between Justin Trudeau's government and the provinces failed to produce a national deal on a new health accord. The federal government had put on the table about $3 billion in additional federal money for mental health and homecare over the next 10 years.------If the politicians want to have more money for patients and continuing care residents they can simply reduce the number of bureaucrats in government in Alberta Health and at the health authorities. They can amalgamate Covenant Health into AHS which would save us duplicated bureaucracies and excessively paid executives in both chains of less than productive systems. Heck if we really wanted to save money we could shut down all the departments that are present in all these hospitals and have centralized services of all sorts. Centralized X-ray, centralized laboratory and centralized food/laundry services. We are paying a ton of cash for pampered workers everywhere and most especially at AHS. We do not get value from these workers. It's like the situation in the education system where we pay for 61 school boards and then the 61 superintendents. We could free up a ton of cash with a single province wide superboard and fewere superintendents. But will this happen? Nope. Government is not interested in decreasing costs and taking in less money. It is only interested in getting more cash as the GOA was trying to do in this health care deal. But their politics of delay failed. Now get to work Alberta Health bureaucrats, executive staff and politicians and make a mental health care system that actually works rather than puts citizens through hell for no damn reason that I can determine other than folks can't do the work we ask them to do in government. What is needed are major numbers of mums yapping day and night about the crappy mental health services in Alberta. #MentalHealthCrisis #OpioidCrisis #MakeTheDealABHealth #MadeTheDealABHealthNowGetToWorkOnMentalHealth------


Playing politics while folks die is not responsible governance.
Now the deal is signed, lets see value for our public dollars.
Give us a mental health system that works for families -AB Health and not one so screwed up that patients are told to call their politicians at the Grey Nuns Hospital to get a bed at the inn.

It is ridiculous that the bureaucrats and politicians we pay big bucks for spend their time indulging in politics trying to get the federal government to increase money for health care when they jolly well should have been on the ball and have signed this deal immediately.

If the politicians want to have more money for patients and continuing care residents they can simply reduce the number of bureaucrats in government in Alberta Health and at the health authorities. They can amalgamate Covenant Health into  AHS which would save us duplicated bureaucracies and excessively paid executives in both chains of less than productive systems.

  •  Why the delay by Alberta? Did the folks at Alberta Health have to have major numbers of dead citizens due to the opioid crisis plus a joint presentation by the opposition parties to get the deal done?
    Why hasn't there been immediate action?
    The mental health system has been in a mess for ages. 
    Families need dedicated mental health funds;most of this money may be eaten up paying psychiatrists, NPs and such like but some of the dedicated funds may get to those who need it the most.
    Get going Alberta Health. What are we paying all these bureaucrats to do?
