Canadian health care needs a transfusion
The incoming president … says this country’s health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it.
“We all agree that the system is imploding, we all agree that things are more precarious than perhaps Canadians realize,” …
The current president said
… there’s a critical need to make Canada’s health-care system patient-centred.
Ouellet has been saying since his return that “a health-care revolution has passed us by,” that it’s possible to make wait lists disappear while maintaining universal coverage and “that competition should be welcomed, not feared.”
In other words, Ouellet believes there could be a role for private health-care delivery within the public system.
