Excellent Care for All

Primary Care Funding

Physicians are key partners in building a higher quality health care system. As the province transforms the system to make it more patient-centred and focused on value, it is also essential for the government to reinvent its relationship with Ontario’s doctors. Physician compensation currently represents 23 per cent of the $47.1 billion the province annually spends on health care. By comparison, community care represents 6 per cent. It is essential to build a continuum of care in the community to address the growing needs of seniors outside hospitals and long-term care. Health system transformation involves re-examining the balance of where health care dollars are directed to best serve the changing needs of patients.
