Today, Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, issued the following statement on the Divisional Court's dismissal of the application for judicial review relating to the government's changes to physiotherapy services:

"With today's ruling, Ontario will be able to move forward with our plan to improve physiotherapy services for 200,000 more seniors.  My ministry is working with all our partners to ensure a smooth transition for patients.  All along, our priority has been to ensure that seniors get the services they need to help them stay healthy, physically active and independent.  Our changes will also provide broader access to physiotherapy throughout the province no matter where seniors live in Ontario."
