McGill teaching hospitals and Faculty of Medicine advocate for patient choice and immediate wider consultation on access to radiation therapy

Montreal, March 12, 2014 - On the critical matter of radiation therapy for patients suffering from cancer in and around greater Montreal, the Jewish General Hospital, the McGill University Health Centre, St. Mary’s Hospital Center and the McGill Faculty of Medicine strongly encourage the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) to reconsider its proposal to reorganize access based primarily on residential postal codes of patients, scheduled to begin April 1, 2014. In the interest of our patients, we urge the MSSS to instead initiate a comprehensive consultation with stakeholders, and we look forward to assisting in this process to define the best solution to offeringthe highest qualitycancer care.
