Tony Clement urges senators to block generic-drug legislation ]|
Do you believe the media that the healthcare system is broken, or do you believe we must make physicians, ERs, hospitals, for-profit (and US-based) long-term care/retirement homes, more accountable and transparent?
Should we allow privatisation of healthcare, and a two or three-tier system?
Do you believe in concierge medial clinics that treat those who can afford it, limit patient loads, charge patients $3500/year for immediate access?
Or should we institute Family Health Teams, as is done in Canada, with more Nurse Practitioners, especially in remote locations?
Should e-Health be a priority for Canada?

This week's show on concierge medicine generated a strong difference of opinion from you. Provital Health and Wellness, based in Calgary is one such clinic. Provital charges paying patients an annual membership fee of $3500. The high annual fee is usually justified on the basis that the fee pays for unlimited access to dieticians, massage therapists, psychologists and other health care workers whose services are generally not paid for by most provinces.
