“It is encouraging to hear that, according to National Physician Survey (NPS) data, the substantial investments in this area are beginning to have an effect. Advanced diagnostic services are rated by FPs and GPs as being increasingly accessible. The proportion of physicians rating access as “poor” has decreased from 37% in 2004 to 19% in 2010, while the proportion of those rating access as “excellent” or “very good” climbed from 9% in 2004 to 19% in 2010.”
The National Physician Survey is produced by the CFPC, the CMA, and the Royal College. Our data is drawn from surveys sent to every licensed physician in Canada as well as to all Canadian medical residents and students.
