November 8, 1974 - Canadian doctor, Dr. Robin Bagley, talks about problems with Canadian health insurance plan. Says it doesn?t reward people equally on the basis of training or work. People on welfare would be written off. National Health has preserved this imbalance, How doctors are paid has little relationship to work and training, sharpens income gap between different types of health workers. Increases gap between those who are under national health insurance and those who aren?t. Assumption is that services are available to everybody; subtle distinction between availbility and accessibility. The question is if you?re sick are the services there. Unresolved dilemma, some provinces have more doctors, people in cities get more health services. How does a country decide how much it wants to spend on something? Caanadian government has not set money guidlines about how much money should be spent, obvious crunch coming. If you spend more in one area have to cut back other priorities. Speaks at press conference.
