TORONTO, June 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Ontario's doctors look forward to
continuing to work with Premier Kathleen Wynne and her government to
improve the province's health-care system.
"We congratulate Premier Wynne and her government today," said Dr. Ved
Tandan, President of the OMA. "We are enthusiastic about continuing
our work together and see this as an opportunity to renew our focus on
ensuring all Ontarians have access to a quality health care system
where and when they need it."
During the provincial campaign, the OMA surveyed all candidates and
parties about their support for six key policies to improve patient
care, including strategies around: end of life, health human resources,
mental health, connectivity and communication, stronger tobacco
measures, and obesity.
"Eighty-seven per cent believe health care is an important issue," said
Dr. Tandan. "We need to ensure health care stays a top priority for
this new government."
