User fees could ease health care strain

I’d like to thank the health care workers of Chilliwack for all the hard work they do for their clientele.

I’d like to thank the health care workers of Chilliwack for all the hard work they do for their clientele. Health care is very challenging and recently I had a large surgery. I was treated well, even if I was stuck in a four-bed room.

Having worked and lived in the USA, I had to pay thousands of dollars for health care.

I know the hospital system is dealing with overcrowding issues. The only solution I see is user fees being implemented for non urgent cases, and for people who refuse to take care of themselves and then expect to be taken care of at the cost of a child awaiting health care.

I also believe integrating federal and provincial health care systems and powering the provincial providers we use is the answer to the health care crisis we all face. Just a few suggestions to  keep our nurses and physicians and surgeons less overworked and health care for all.
