Press Release: Statement issued to Media by Durham Region Stroke Recovery Group, Whitby, Ont.

Despite new healthcare law passed at Queens Park in 2016 the Wynne Liberal Government continues to discriminate against our adults by denying much needed and time sensitive OHIP funded stroke treatment/physiotherapy to our Post-Stroke Patients/Survivors between the ages of 20 and 64.

This age discrimination is preventing our adults from returning to work or continuing their Post-Secondary studies. Our adults are huge contributors to Ontario Society and are deserving of proper and timely healthcare/treatment after suffering a stroke.
