WHEREAS 2.2 million Ontarians currently do not have a family physician and are not connected to primary care, which puts their health at imminent risk; and

WHEREAS access to primary health care keeps people out of emergency rooms; and,

WHEREAS primary health care providers need sustainable resources in order to maintain capacity to deliver primary care, mental health care, chronic disease management, community supports, and innovative services that help end hallway health care; and,

WHEREAS hiring additional staff support could free up Ontario's primary care providers to take on an estimated additional 2 million patients;

THEREFORE WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:
Urgently implement a strategy to increase the number of staff support for primary care providers so they can spend their time treating patients instead of doing paperwork.
