65,000 Londoners Need a Family Doctor

Published on March 7, 2023

QUEEN'S PARK - 65,500 people in London do not have a family doctor, including almost 1/4 of patients at St. Joseph’s Hospital Urgent Care. Forcing people to go to Urgent Care or the ER after a serious problem develops is not only costly to the system, but bad for patient health. At Queen’s Park today, I asked the Premier how much longer Londoners have to wait before they will be able to find a family doctor.
