Doctors pay

The province is finally starting to release doctors salaries five years after the auditor general recommended it.

The figures on what doctors were paid last year show 24 physicians making over $1 million. The top doc, Stewart MacMillan, a radiologist at the Miramichi Hospital, took in just over $1.5 million.

The Health department points out these are gross earnings and do not take into account expenses such as staff salaries or rent.
