Victoria, B.C. – Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington says the B.C. government and Fraser Health’s failure to respond to Delta Hospital doctors’ concerns is putting lives at risk.
“Thirty-one Delta Hospital doctors wrote to the health minister in October to tell him that people’s lives are in danger because acute surgical services are not offered after hours,” says Huntington. “People are being transferred to Surrey if their appendicitis happens to strike too late in the day, where they have to wait hours before treatment. It’s unacceptable.”
