That’s every week longer than final yr — and greater than double the corresponding determine from 1993, when Fraser started retaining observe.
Sufferers with complicated medical wants languished even longer. These in want of neurosurgery, as an example, confronted a median wait of practically 33 weeks. For orthopedic surgical procedure, wait instances exceeded 41 weeks.
Rural Canadians confronted comparable delays. The median wait time for specialist remedy in New Brunswick was nearly 42 weeks. In Nova Scotia, it was practically 38 weeks. And on Prince Edward Island, over 32 weeks.
