Document Download: Submission to the Standing Committee on General Government regarding Bill 8

Our submission states, in part: "Our submission enumerates a number of reasons why the proposed creation of a patient ombudsman will not provide the necessary independent oversight of health care organizations to ensure quality patient care in Ontario’s health sector. It is ONA’s position that effective and independent oversight of the health sector will only be accomplished through the existing office of the Ontario Ombudsman."
