Healthcare great; should also include pharmacare and dental

I would like to extend a sincere thank you and appreciation to the hard working and professional healthcare workers at Cowichan District Hospital.

Last week I had day surgery and the care I received was phenomenal. From the admitting clerk, to the pre op, operating room and post op nurses, the anaesthesiologist to my surgeon, thank you all. I am happily recovering at home grateful for the care I received.

We are so fortunate to live in a province and country that has adopted the former NDP leader Tommy Douglas’s vision for a national healthcare system for all. Moving forward, we also need the system to include pharmacare and dental care. Once again, thank you to all the professional healthcare workers.
