Healthcare in Canada, a true test of patience , says survey

A survey conducted among many Canadian households has revealed that nearly 40 per cent of the respondents were unable to realize timely medical guidance and facilities, especially during the bygone three months.

The Decima poll conducted amongst 3,000 Canadians has shown that 81 per cent of households required medical care during the previous three months and felt the waiting times were unwarranted. Many felt that emergency care and appointments with specialists were unduly delayed.
