"We had a great pathology department..."

The Liberals have turned a first rate pathology service at Kelowna General Hospital into a third rate system...

From day one, we’ve said we don’t need a contingency plan (for pathology),” said Dr. Colin Yarrow, chairman of the KGH medical advisory committee.“We had a great pathology department; we’ve never had a complaint at MAC (medical advisory committee).

In February and March, we rejected all 12 contingency plans proposed by IH. Only one item was recommended: a settlement with pathologists. "We’ve always stood by that." Sending tissue samples to a private Ottawa lab for analysis is uncharted territory for Okanagan doctors, he said. - Kelowna Daily Courier, May 14, 2005
