I keep hearing mutterings on TV that it could be 15K sometime in October. Seems a stretch, but what do I know?

Not a lot seeing as you admit to being from Yorkshire I think I remember mutterings on the TV about 6 years ago when a certain Donald J Trump said he was running as a candidate for the White House. He will never win a seat. Oh hold on he is now running for the Republican leadership. The Republicans aren't dumb enough to have him as their leader. Oh wait he is now running for President. Oh he will never be elected as the President.

Yup just emphasizing don't always believe what your hear on the TV as the odd expert has been wrong once or twice.

Some university mathematical modelling expert types, their models showed BC could worst case scenario top 10,000 a day by October at the then current growth rate, but its a month old now, no idea if we are still in that upward trend or if we flattened out a bit growth wise.

Surely if you're unable to be vaccinated and so remain unprotected you wouldn't want to be in risky places. We're double jabbed but are avoiding people. If vaccine passports encourage the recalcitrant we will all be safer.

First for me but I guess it keeps the website from crashing, seems the government has learned since early in the pandemic when opening day for pandemic things the website would crash hard.

Ha ha i just got exactly the same thing but my wait time was scheduled for 2 minutes less than yours
What a waste of time i cannot be bothered i will try next week. It took 3 attempts and lots of waiting just to get my doctors office to answer the damn phone today but when i did finally get through she said you can come tomorrow if you like. I guess they have plenty of appointments available because nobody can get through to book one.

Yeah I closed the window as soon as I saw the wait, I don't need it so I will wait for now.

I came across this today, I really hope they don't do away with virtual appointments, I find them so much better for 99% of my medical needs, and my doctor has office hours still for those needing to visit in person, but some doctors I guess are refusing in person and its causing a burden on the ER's apparently.

The part about reviewing virtual care payments to doctors concerns me, like why does the province care if I speak to the doctor on the phone or in the office to get my 90 day refill, its such a waste of time for me to go all the way to the doctors office, wait, spend like 3 minutes with the doctor, then drive all the way back home, a waste of 2 hours really, when I can stay home, do the same thing over the phone.

I was surprised back on August 16th when I called the doctor's office to request a phone-in call for prescription refills, usually get an appointment that day or the next day ................. the receptionist said she didn't have one until August 31st.

She did finally find one for late afternoon on August 25th, but told me I would have to contact the pharmacist if I needed a refill or refills before that date., and get them to send in a request from.

As I said, it has never taken that long before! Mind you, it was not the receptionist I usually speak to, who is much more efficient

One thing you rarely get with my GP is same day or next day appointments, there is usually a 1-2 week wait, looking at the online appointment calendar the first virtual appointment available is September 18th.

First available in clinic appointment is September 23.

You have the unicorn of GP's if you can routinely get same or next day appointments.

I once had a GP you would need to book 3-4 weeks in advance and because he covered the small town ER often, good chance your appointment would be cancelled day off due to an emergency at the hospital, sucks living in small towns.

We got a big case of rapid test kits at work, so yesterday my team leader was practicing on the staff. We took the swab and inserted it up our own nose to the cringe point, twirled it 6 or 7 times, then repeated using the same swab in the other nostril then the swab goes into a vial. A few minutes later there was some sort of indication that the reagent was working, then 15 minutes later it indicated negative. We were all negative. I guess when we reopen the plan is to test anyone at the door who can't provide proof of vaccination or result of a recent test.
