Ontario again! Ok I dont have health care yet but can comment on the system - certainly better than the UK
Yes it is probably abused but I dont think it is as much as in the UK.
I took an abscess on Saturday and by Sunday I was poorly so had to go to a walk in clinic. There are many around. The place was very very busy and suggested hubby took kids away expecting an hour or so wait, it was like or worse than my emergency hospital back home.
I waited 5mins and was given a thorough going over, not only for my mouth abscess but chest, tummy and all, unfortunately he found something I didnt realise I had but fortunately he found it on time or I could have been in hospital without health care
No I like the health service here
