ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issuance of a national report entitled "No Time for Complacency," by the Wait Time Alliance (WTA) in Canada. It highlights the spotty progress and inadequate information of the 6 billion dollars effort to reduce wait times in five clinical priority areas. It adds that New Foundland and Labrador has been singled out as being particularly remiss in reducing wait times in following areas including cataract surgery, diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy.
