Study Reveals Pandemic Spurred Exodus of Ontario Family Doctors


New research by Unity Health Toronto indicates that Ontario family doctors left the profession at the start of the pandemic at double the rate of the years before COVID-19 hit. The study revealed that about three percent of family doctors across the province (around 385 doctors) stopped practising between March and September 2020, which accounted for an estimated 170,000 patients losing access to primary care.
