The doc pays the overhead, pays the secretary & nurses, and keeps the rest. Profit. Correct. I am not sure what people think a doctors job or service is. He?she are private workers with hospital privileges. They can help patients within the provincial system or outside of it at any time. My friend needed hip replacement but the wait list was so long there was no help in sight so he got it replaced "privately". Those same doctors worked within the provincial system too. Some days they did operations in the hospital under all the rules therein and on other days they did it within a clinic under those rules. Are they double dipping?? For sure and have been for as long as I can remember. Oh and, m any of those nurses also work in hospitals as well as in clinics. So, in Ontario, all that is being done is recognizing private clinics and sending work their way with provincial approval. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
