Surgical Wait Times Down in Saskatchewan

Written by Jessica Vallee on Wednesday, 04 June 2014

The number of patients waiting more than three months for surgery in Saskatchewan is down 75 per cent over the past four years.

In 2010, the four-year Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative was implemented to improve access to surgical care for people in Saskatchewan, and recent statistics show that it has been a success.

Health Minister Dustin Duncan commented that “Thanks to the hard work of regional health authorities and patients, we saw a remarkable improvement in surgical wait times across the province.”

The Surgical Initiative was the first major health system project to include patients in the planning process.
