55.1. In addition to the requirements set out in sections 184 and 186 of the Act, the part of an organization plan developed under one of those sections must provide for the distribution of the number of general practitioners and, if applicable, medical specialists, for each of the facilities maintained by the institution or by group of facilities determined according to the territory specified by the Minister.
The Minister may also send directives to an institution concerning the preparation of its organization plan. The directives may prescribe, in particular, the terms governing the distribution of physicians among the facilities as well as the applicable terms for determining the number, which may vary according to whether they are general practitioners or medical specialists.
The Minister may, for the purposes of the primary care family physician distribution plan prepared under the second paragraph of section 91, modify a medical and dental staffing plan he or she authorized. The Minister may also, if he or she considers it warranted by exceptional circumstances, and on the conditions he or she sets, authorize an institution to depart from the latter plan.
