Patients and doctors must be able to access health care

TORONTO, Feb. 3, 2022 — Ontario’s doctors recognize the tremendous challenges physicians, other health-care workers, patients and residents of Ottawa and other regions have faced this week trying to provide and receive health care. Lives depend on patients and health-care workers getting into or out of hospitals, clinics and other health-care facilities, particularly the elderly and the vulnerable. As the OMA has said throughout the pandemic, doctors and other health-care workers have been working around the clock on the front lines of the pandemic helping to keep our communities safe. They cannot and must not be distracted, or worse, discouraged or blocked at the doorsteps of their workplaces.
