Survey says health care OK

Albertans satisfaction with the healthcare system has remained virtually constant over the past few years, according to a survey released yesterday.

Albertans satisfaction with the healthcare system has remained virtually constant over the past few years, according to a survey released yesterday.

Data from the Health Quality Council of Alberta showed that 62 percent of those who received healthcare services in the past year ranked their satisfaction as a four or five out of five.

This is up only two per cent from 2008, which David Eggen, executive director of Friends of Medicare, said shows that Alberta Health Services is “stalled.”

“The numbers didn’t really change from year to year, which makes me wonder what all the effort was if Albertans are still not getting satisfaction in terms of wait times and in terms of access to the system,” said Eggen.

Eggen also added in the time since Albertans took this survey, there have been several changes to Alberta Health Services.

“This survey was taken in the spring and we’ve had our confidence further shaken with these recent leadership events. They need to get their act together, for sure.”

This is the first survey done by Health Quality Council of Alberta since Alberta Health Services was formed in 2008.
