The CAQ’s response to the issue of access to health care is just a diversionary tactic. Science has shown us that being monitored by a family doctor is essential to offering the population the best care. The CAQ has given up on that objective.
François Legault is proposing a platform for walk-in consultations which is not a solution for the over one million Quebecers still waiting for a family physician, especially since it does nothing to ensure that a family doctor will actually be monitoring them moving forward.
What the CAQ is announcing today is nothing but a smokescreen. This health care announcement is just an operation in creative accounting to conceal the past years’ failures.
– Dominique Anglade, Leader of the Quebec Liberal Party
François Legault has let Quebecers down and condemned us to a walk-in system rather than providing us with a family doctor who will be responsible for our care. We at the Quebec Liberal Party believe that we should ensure continued long-term monitoring care for Quebecers, not simply through walk-in consultations without any genuine follow up.
Under a Liberal government, we won’t ever give up like François Legault has done. We will do everything in our power to provide each Quebecer with a family doctor by:
- Training more doctors;
- Ensuring a better distribution of family doctors throughout our territory;
- Ensuring that family doctors spend more time in clinic and less in hospitals;
- Reviewing the amount of administrative red tape in clinics.
