Surgeries Backlog Increases

WINNIPEG - Doctors Manitoba says the backlog of surgeries and other medical procedures in the province is getting worse.

The organization says the backlog has grown from 110,000 to 130,000 in just four months.

President Dr. Kristjan Thompson says they still want the governing Conservatives to establish a task force to deal with the problem.

Health minister Audrey Gordon says her government is investing tens of millions of dollars to reduce the backlog.
