SASKATOON - The NDP are making election campaign promises that they say would build a healthier Saskatchewan.

Speaking in Saskatoon, NDP Leader Dwain Lingenfelter pledged more money to recruit doctors, especially in rural areas.

He also promised 30 primary health care clinics for the province and cash to bolster hospital emergency rooms.

Lingenfelter says health care wait times are too long and medical services aren't accessible enough.

The NDP say they will also spend more on midwifery, speech therapy, childhood disabilities and reinstate coverage for chiropractic care.

The health promises would cost the province more than $31 million.
