Fraser Institute recently released its new report for medical wait times in Canada in 2022. The overall increases in wait times show up in several specialties. One of them is GYN. The median wait time for a GYN from a referral by GP to treatment is 32.1 weeks, 8.1 weeks increase from 2021. The median wait time from GP referral to see a GYN is 15.7 weeks and from seeing GYN to get treatment is 16.4 weeks.
Of course, these numbers vary depending on the province you live in. Saskatchewan has the shortest wait times, with 4 weeks from GP referral to GYN, and then 11.9 weeks from GYN to treatment, making a total median wait time of 15.9 weeks. Atlantic Canada leads the worse wait times for GYN. In NS, one can wait 110.7 weeks to see a GYN once their GP refers them, and then an additional 52 weeks to get treatment. Total wait time can be 162.7 weeks – over 3 years!
For many women, such wait times present a serious issue. Many seek private health care, such as a private hysterectomy or private laparoscopy. In the past, we helped many women get private GYN surgery in a timely manner. In general, we can arrange a private hysterectomy within 3-4 weeks from the time we receive your medical records.
Private medical facilities we work with have virtually no wait times. Health Vantis will connect you to a safe and affordable private medical facility and make all the logistical arrangements for you. Reach out to us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or toll free 877 344 3544 to learn more.
