Ottawa area cancer patients wait longer for treatment

Some comparative stats on wait times for residents of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario compared to elsewhere in the province (not sure how these compare with elsewhere in Canada and the US).

In my case, once in the ‘system’, things moved along expeditiously. While I had to ask our family doctor at the time to press for an earlier appointment with a haematologist or oncologist after diagnosis, I was in treatment in less than 3 weeks, under the target of 28 days (and with all cancers, less time is better).

Area cancer patients wait longer for treatment, report finds.
