Thank you for the email and the questions. It is no question at all that we need a health care system that supports us. The Liberals will clear the surgical and diagnostic backlog with a $1 billion investment over the next two years.
We will ensure that everyone has access to a doctor or nurse within 24 hours, and grow the number of hospital beds by 20%.
Ontario’s health care system, and the people behind it, are stretched to their limits – it doesn’t have to stay that way.
We will also build capacity for 100,000 nurses, doctors and other health care workers, including those in cancer care, by covering tuition costs for those studying in the medical fields.
A Liberal government will also stop the expansion of for-profit health care and support not-for-profit surgery centres managed by local hospitals.
