Ontario docs are leaving – patients have trouble finding good doctors











{May 8, 2012}   DEB MATTHEWS – SACRIFICIAL LAMB

It’s fast becoming clear that current Health Minister Deb Matthews is being led by simple-minded bureacrats. It will no longer be worthwhile for doctors to invest in expensive equipment for tests covered by OHIP.  Hospitals with rich donors will be able to buy the best and latest equipment, but  hospitals in poorer areas will not. Of course this will promote travel to Montreal where private medicine is widely available.  $ 3.00  return  + tax  on the Megabus.  Not an improvement for patients in Ontario but a windfall for Quebec economy .  Deb blew it !!!  She can employ as many third-world docs (now driving taxis and delivering pizzas) as she wants, but smart Ontario docs will go where the money is.
 
Politically this will likely be the end of her.
