Reducing Red Tape for Physicians

Share your challenges and ideas

Unnecessary administrative burden (red tape) affects doctors in many ways like impacting their productivity, work-life balance, job satisfaction and the amount of time they can spend with existing patients or take on new ones. We are looking for feedback from physicians to identify unnecessary administrative burden and ideas for improvement (for example, forms that are too long and processes that are confusing or take too much effort). By sharing your challenges and ideas, you can help the Government of Nova Scotia remove and reduce unnecessary administrative burdens.
