NDP says spinal surgery waits unnaceptable
Our series Backbone has been chronicling the stories of two Okanagan teenagers who required spinal surgery, but did not get it here in BC.
Instead, they turned to Shriners Hospitals in the US.
We've heard how two independent reports found the health care system failed these boys and their families.
We also got an explanation from BC Children's Hospital, where officials say improvements have been made.
The Ministry of Health sent a letter of regret to one of the moms featured in our stories. It acknowledged the family's "difficult experience" with the health care system.
Next up is Mike Farnworth. He's the health critic for the NDP and he spoke with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
