Shorter Surgery Wait Times Coming to Saskatchewan?

Blog, Healthcare & Welfare, Les Routledge

The Saskatchewan government has issued an RFP to contract for the delivery of day surgery procedures.

I hope this approach works for Saskatchewan and helps people avoid the 15 month waiting period that I encountered between seeing my primary GP and finally getting the surgery.  The added costs to my farming operation related to being disabled during that period exceeded $20,000.  That is a cost that the health system cannot appear to be able to include in their cost-benefit analysis methods.  Two years later, I am still attempting to pay off the loans incurred because of that situation instead of investing in expanding production.
