Im guessing you could say Two-tier health care will be advancing in Ontario Canada as studys are happening one of which Ive posted the interesting part.
Survey that is in circulation via internet and in person , must make over 50,000 per year and live in Ontario to do the Survey. The Purpose is to get view points from wealthy or people with money to see their interest in new clinics.
We would like you to read the following information about a new service opening in your area which we’ll call “New Clinic”
New Clinic offers walk-in health care to patients 2 years of age and older for common, non-emergency ailments in a convenient retail location such as a grocery or drug store with a pharmacy.
New Clinic is staffed by certified Registered Nurse practitioners. The clinic is open 7 days a week 14+ hours per day with no appointment necessary. The New Clinic offers quick 15 minute patient visits, with rapid tests for common ailments and a prescription if needed.
Certified registered nurse practitioners are experienced nurses with advanced education and training who are qualified to: diagnose, prescribe medicines for and treat many common, non-emergency illnesses (such as flu, sore throat, ear ache and urinary tract or other infections); administer physical examinations and routine vaccinations, screen for health conditions and advise about general wellness programs
If the condition cannot be treated at the clinic you will be referred to a physician or Emergency Department.
You will receive a record of your visit to share with your doctor if you wish.
