Breaking the Waiting List Silence
I know how difficult it can be for a patient trying to navigate our public health care system in search of access to high quality care or some accountability for the lack thereof. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for the doctors, nurses and other health care providers forced to work within the limits of this system.
A special boy from British Columbia named Walid is now recovering from surgery in a hospital south of the border. It’s a surgery he could not access in the Canadian health care system because of waiting lists that are two or more years. Walid’s mother Debbie, who is also a nurse, worked tirelessly to bring attention to his case before making the decision to leave the country to seek medical care. You can help break the waiting list silence by watching Walid’s story and passing on its message “No more waiting”.
