(Saint John)-The Medical Society has invited Minister Flemming and Premier David Alward to their board meeting this weekend as a way to address any issues the government may have with medical practices in the province.

The Society invited Flemming after he made several controversial comments recently regarding doctors and their salaries, which are not sitting well with the society.

Flemming says he does not understand the way the Medical Society is reacting the way it is.

” I dont quite understand  the way  in which the Medical Society reacts to a position that i think is just good stewardship of the public funds”
The Minister  says he will be attending  the meeting tomorrow with the Medical Society however Premier Alward who was also invited will not attend.

The health Minister was at the Regional Hospital Friday to take a tour of the newly renovated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit which will be fully operational on Wendsday.
