The following is a statement from Ontario PC Health Critic Jeff Yurek on Doctors’ Day:
“On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, I would like to commend Ontario’s doctors for their dedication to their patients throughout the province.
Every day our province’s 28,000 physicians treat 320,000 patients. Whether they are diagnosing common illnesses or performing life-saving procedures, our doctors always make themselves available.
Ontario’s physicians deserve a government that invests in health care services and works with doctors to ensure Ontarians have access to quality health care services. Unfortunately the current government has chosen to attack doctors publicly and try to divide the profession.
The Ontario PC Caucus values the important work of Ontario’s doctors, and is committed to continue advocating for a sustainable, quality health care system. We thank our doctors for their dedication in putting patients first”
