Surgical wait times

The future of surgical care in BC is at a crossroads. Over the past decade, surgical wait times have increased significantly.  BC leads the country in longest wait times for vital procedures such as hip replacement, knee replacement and cataract surgeries. 

In order to meet this challenge, we need innovative and public solutions that are consistent across the province to ensure everyone has access to the quality care that they need.
