The NDP was on the attack in the legislature Wednesday over health care issues.
Opposition critic Danielle Chartier says a proposed 3.5 per-cent cut in government worker wages will affect front-line health care.
She says hall way medicine is a sad reality.
She says wait times and overcapacity will only get worse with salary cuts.
Health minister Jim Reiter says health care is a priority for his government and steps have been taken to reduce overcrowding at Regina hospitals.
He says it is a long-term issue and is across the country.
