Reducing patient wait times, expanding mental health, addiction and home care services, and preparing for the next pandemic. These are among top priorities for a group representing Ontario doctors.

Recommendations for improving the province’s health system have been shared by the Ontario Medical Association in a new report published Tuesday.

The report also highlights the need to strengthen public health units and assign a linked team of health-care providers to every patient.

In addition, it calls for adequate funding to address the patient backlog, ensuring services are fully staffed, educating people about healthy lifestyles, and offering more services outside hospitals and improving data collection.

There is also a push by the OMA for all of the provincial political parties to include the recommendations in their platforms leading up to next June’s election.
