Do you think Canada needs a national patient charter?The poll attracting the most feedback from our readers featured a question about the need for a national patient charter in Canada. This type of document outlines the rights and responsibilities of patients and the health care system. Results from our poll indicate that 75% of respondents believe that Canada should have a patient charter.
This relates to one of our earlier polls where 56% of respondents chose accountability as their top concern in health care. We recently added a new survey called Long Wait Times in Canadian Health Care to give patients an opportunity to provide feedback on their wait list experiences. Watch for more surveys to be added in the coming months.

    As long as we entrust the government with our money and our care, we will get what they deem we need. As a Canadian faced with a health crisis 6 years ago, I had to leave Canada for care. My wife was crippled by a 2 year wait for surgery. I paid taxes into the system for years, but still had to pay $2,800 in the US to get my wife’s foot rebuilt with titanium.

    There’s something very wrong with that.
