Letter: Still waiting for some health care on Westside
To the editor:
My wife and I have heard the comments about the health care situation here in West Kelowna, and it is a poor situation.
I have already written an email to (Minister of Health) Mike de Jonge about our one and only medical laboratory. It is like a small kitchen trying to feed an army.
My wife has had occasion to use it several times and each time the wait is close to two hours which I think is not needed.
I asked the new health minister if we could have another lab for West Kelowna, but almost three weeks have gone by, and no reply have I heard.
So, I guess all the “new wood” we have in Victoria is still too wet to burn.
I also was not aware that the big expanse of (Westside) property was being held by Interior Health for something. It is too bad that it just sits there doing nothing on Elliot and Bering Avenue.
I know they are trying to find a place for a new jail, but lets fix up the bodies first then they can go to jail healthier.
