The Québec Ombudsperson comments on Bill 127 before the Commission de la santé et des services sociaux
The proposed changes in the Act to improve the management of the health and social services network will have little practical or immediate effect on the improvement of services to the public. "Access to clearly defined, well-integrated and well-dispensed services at a reasonable cost requires a simplification of structures, strengthened accountability and clarification of the basket of services, which are not addressed in this bill," stated Raymonde Saint-Germain.
