Merrilee Fullerton’s Priorities
June 5, 2018

Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, your PC candidate in the riding of Kanata-Carleton:  “Health care is the top concern of many residents I have spoken with in Kanata-Carleton. As we are finding in our community and across Ontario, health care providers, hospitals, and long term care facilities are grappling with an aging and growing population along with rising costs of delivering care.

“This Provincial Liberal Government has had 15 years to address severe hospital and ER overcrowding along with the growing need for senior care in the community, and to demonstrate self-discipline in controlling growth in expensive health care bureaucracy. It has failed on all counts.

“Today, Ontarians face a serious problem with their health care system – and it requires immediate action. I want to be a member of the government that will tackle our health care problems – and I hope to be your representative at Queen’s Park to voice our community’s concerns.”

 

Dr. Fullerton has identified four health priorities for Kanata-Carleton:

  • Accessible Long Term Care
  • Improved Hospital and Emergency Room Capacity
  • Front-line Care not Bureaucracy Bloat
  • Facing Our Opioid Crisis

The PCs have made clear statements on how they will improve health care for Ontarians:

  • End hallway healthcare by cutting wait times
  • Invest in 30,000 long-term care beds in next 10 years
  • Invest $3.8 million in mental health
  • Listen to front line care, doctors and medical professionals to improve care for patients

“My commitment is to work hard for the people of Kanata-Carleton, every day,” Dr. Fullerton asserts.
