Patients First

​ A proposal to strengthen patient-centred health care in Ontario… be part of the conversation! ​​

On December 17, 2105 the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) released Patients First: A proposal to strengthen patient-centred health care in Ontario (please click on the following links to access the discussion document in English & French ).

This discussion document outlines the Ministry's proposed next steps in the transformation of the health care system. It focuses on four interconnected and overarching themes that will inform Ministry policy and program decisions moving forward including.

  • More effective integration of services and greater equity.
  • Timely access to primary care, and seamless links between primary care and other services.
  • More consistent and accessible home and community care.
  • Stronger links between population and public health and other health services.

Be Part of the Conversation!

The Ministry has asked Ontario's LHINs to assist with engaging providers, patients, caregivers and the public regarding their input and advice about the proposals contained in the discussion document.

To support this request, the Central West LHIN is hosting a series of public consultation sessions, at which local residents will have an opportunity to learn more about, and offer advice on, the discussion paper. A complete list of dates, times and locations can be found on the Central West LHIN website .

If you have any questions regarding these public sessions please feel free to contact Tom Miller, Director Communications and Community Engagement at or 905.452.6980.
