The question for Today had to do with Canadians and their thoughts on a particular aspect of daily life.
Question: When it comes to this, Canada ranks last among this survey. What is it?
The answer is one that many have had a bit of a struggle with.
Answer: Getting a same day or next day, evening or weekend appointment with their doctor.
“Canadian patients reported more trouble scoring same-day or next-day appointments with their family doctors than patients in any country but Norway, which tied Canada for last place.”
“Over all, Canadians were the most likely to rate the quality of care they receive [from their own doctors] as excellent of all the countries”
The Netherlands ranked first with 72% saying they had very quick access to their doctor.
