CBC Rundown with Andrew Nichols
August 20, 2022
NAO Director Dr. Sara Allin was a guest on the August 18 broadcast of CBC News Network with Andrew Nichols, where she discussed the Ontario government’s new plan in detail. Dr. Allin noted that much of the government’s five-point plan represents reasonable steps towards improving the province’s health system and there remain important omissions, including a lack of supports for health workers as well as for home and informal care workers, who are increasingly providing care to their loved ones at home. Dr. Allin pointed out that current legislation prohibits independent health facilities from additional billing, and that they must comply with the existing rules and principles undergirding Ontario’s public health system.
