Hundreds more Alberta doctors are lending their voices to the growing outcry against the provincial government's sweeping changes to the way doctors are paid.

Health Minister Tyler Shandro terminated the master agreement between the province and the Alberta Medical Association last month and will impose sweeping changes to doctors' compensation at the end of March.

The changes include limits on how much family doctors get paid for longer appointments and undisclosed cuts to pay for physicians who work inside publicly funded facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes.
