From the Desk of Dr. Merrilee Fullerton
September 22, 2016
This past week I participated in the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine’s annual Social Accountability Forum for first year medical students. It was a day in which these brightest of young medical minds explored their changing role as health care evolves.
I provided a hopeful and realistic message challenging the students to be part of the solution. “Physicians have so much to contribute and must be willing to speak out about patient need and system change.”
In the same way I encouraged those students, I believe there are many solutions to Ontario’s challenges – not only in health care, but in hydro and education, and for the government’s out of control spending. Kathleen Wynne has done irreparable harm to Ontario. I believe it is possible to put Ontario back on track. There are solutions and I want to contribute to them.
As a family physician I’m often asked how the current health care system can be improved. Let me state 5 points that can serve as the principles to tackle the serious challenges our system is faced with today.
These principles are a starting point for creating a transformational shift in Ontario’s health care. I will continue to speak out in a positive, constructive way for this approach.
I look forward to talking more about health care and the many other pressing issues which individuals, families, and businesses face in the riding of Kanata-Carleton. I look forward to speaking with you in the months ahead – and thank you for your continued support in my drive to become the nominated PC candidate and to represent my home community at Queen’s Park.
