HALIFAX _ Nova Scotia’s doctors have ratified two four-year agreements with the provincial government.

In a statement, the Health Department says the agreements include funding to improve access to care, recruit doctors and reduce wait times.

It says the deals will include ways to increase access to collaborative care clinics, which provide team-based health care.

The agreements include $10 million for collaborative care access, $7.5 million to recruit and retain doctors and $3 million for non face-to-face care.

The agreements also provide raises of one per cent in the third year and 1.5 per cent in the fourth year.

The 2,800 doctors affected by the deals, which were reached in principle in April, are represented by Doctors Nova Scotia.
