Canadians want health care change

The umpteenth survey has confirmed what politicans refuse to face: citizens want health care reform. Pollara's 10th Health Care in Canada Survey not only shows citizens want change, it shows health care professionals also want it. "Sixty-nine per cent of nurses felt the system needed significant change, while 62% of doctors favoured 'some fairly major repairs.'"

Health Care in Canada Survey highlights:
- 68% of Canadians think the system needs major repairs or complete rebuilding.
- 57% of Canadians rate their health as good or excellent.
- 57% feel they are receiving quality health care.
- 37% of Canadians reported being diagnosed with a chronic illness.
- 48% believe access to good quality, timely health care will improve in the next five years.
- 49% think access to family doctors has worsened.
- 30% strongly support giving Canadian access to private clinics if wait times guaranteed for certain procedures aren't met in the public system.

It is natural to have high levels of support for the Health Care System.

Most adults are healthy. You really need to poll the people who are in serious medical distress to see haow the system fares.
