“A group of doctors and health care advocates are protesting outside a private health clinic in Vancouver, demanding the clinic stop treating patients who are willing to pay for services that are normally covered by the public system.
The Cambie Surgical Centre is one of two private clinics ordered by the medical services commission to stop extra billing. Monday is the 30-day deadline for the clinic to comply. Ryan Jabs, a spokesman for the B.C. Ministry of Health, said the province would proceed with an injunction to enforce the order “shortly,” but couldn’t elaborate.”
