Health Minister Adrian Dix was forcing the shut down of the province's 56 private surgical facilities and 17 others that provide MRIs

Health Minister Adrian Dix was forcing the shut down of the province's 56 private surgical facilities and 17 others that provide MRIs, that help to keep waiting lists down in the public system.

“The plaintiffs have established that there is a serious question to be tried in that … some patients will suffer serious physical and/or psychological harm while waiting for health services (and) some physicians will not provide private-pay medically necessary health services after the (provisions) take effect,” the ruling says.

The provisions meant that doctors who charged patients for medically necessary procedures would face initial fines of $10,000.
