The interim CEO of Nova Scotia Health says the public can expect to see improvements to the province’s ailing health-care system in the first half of 2023.

Karen Oldfield made the comments during a public meeting Thursday in Dartmouth.

“We’ve spent the last 15 months digging to the bottom of the well and once we got to the bottom, building the ladder to get out,” she told the crowd of about 50 people in attendance.

“I’m comfortable that we have the momentum.”

In an interview, Oldfield said that progress will include the rollout of more family medicine and collaborative care clinics, large graduating classes of health-care professions, and a focus on hiring and expanding the use of technology to help people access the health-care system.
