A Message from Ontario's Doctors
Ontario’s doctors are committed to having the healthiest patients and the best health care system. We’re doing our best to achieve these goals, but the people of Ontario need government to step up and make health care the number one priority!
The reality is that our health care system is struggling. Every day, we hear more about increasing wait times, cancellations and delays. Our hospitals are overflowing with patients, emergency rooms are jammed, sick patients line the hallways on stretchers awaiting treatment.
Wait times for long-term care are growing. Access to mental health services is an ongoing, serious problem. In many rural and northern areas, patients are forced to leave their families and travel great distances to access treatment that should be available closer to home.
These are just a few examples of the serious challenges that we need to fix if we are going to have a health care system that truly meets the needs of our patients and the people of Ontario.
For too long, doctors and our partners in the health care system have been working to prop up a health care system that is underfunded and facing extreme pressures from a growing and aging population.
Funding cuts, longer wait times, and increased patient demands for care have created a perfect storm that we need to tackle head on, together!
Ontario doctors are on the frontlines of health care. We know the problems in the system, and we have solutions. We need a government that shares the same commitment. The people of Ontario cannot wait any longer.
Please take some time to review this document, and please sign our campaign pledge to make government provide the health care that patients in your community deserve.
Not A Second Longer! The time for action is now!
