Wait­list watch­ing

The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

The ar­ti­cle “Wait­list, schmaitlist” talked about how Adam Bar­rett, who was among the 50,000 people on the prov­ince’s of­fi­cial wait­list for a fam­ily doc­tor, re­sponded to a clinic’s call for new pa­tients and got a doc­tor “just like that” (City story by Caora McKenna, Novem­ber 29).

I had the same thing hap­pen to me. I was in­formed by a friend that a new doc­tor opened a prac­tice in Antigo­nish, so af­ter spend­ing over two years on a wait­list I de­cided to take mat­ters into my own hands and drove to Antigo­nish. Within a half hour I had a new fam­ily doc­tor. The so-called list is ap­par­ently not be­ing mon­i­tored or man­aged prop­erly.
