Ontario Doctors Like Me Won't Play Along With Patients First Act



Ontario Doctors Like Me Won't Play Along With Patients First Act


Hundreds of my colleagues volunteered thousands of hours at meetings, offering ideas for visionary health-care reform. Yet none of it made it into the Patients First Act. So although this government says it seeks the opinion and advice of industry experts, it ignores all that is offered. In fact, perusing the Standing Committee minutes, this government ignores the advice of doctors, nurses, patient advocates, caregivers and hospitals. Frankly, I'm tired of the Liberals talking out of both sides of their mouths.
This goes beyond issues of physician contracts and funding. Industry experts are coming out against the Patients First Act. Valuing -- and funding -- bureaucracy over patient services will put patients dead last.
