News Release – Jones: Time for Liberals to Act on Hallway Medicine Crisis in Brampton

(Orangeville) – Today, Sylvia Jones called on the Minister of Health to finally address the problem of hallway medicine in Brampton.

“I have heard from constituents about the problems of hallway medicine at Brampton Civic in the past, but the revelation that over 4,000 patients between 2016 and 2017 were put on beds in the hospital’s hallways, is truly shocking,” said Jones.

“In the spring, PC Leader Patrick Brown and I raised concerns regarding hallway medicine occurring in Brampton’s Health Care system, but clearly the Wynne government has done nothing to resolve the issue,” said Jones.

“Now the Mayor of Brampton and former Wynne government cabinet minister, Linda Jeffrey is adding her voice to the families of Peel saying ‘Our health care facilities are currently in crisis,’” said Jones.

“The hallway medicine crisis in Ontario is the direct result of failed Liberal government health policies and experiments. After 14 years of Liberal waste and mismanagement, we have thousands of people not receiving the care they deserve,” said Jones.

“It is time for the Liberal government to fix this crisis in Brampton’s health care system,” concluded Jones.
