On behalf of the North East CCAC’s Board of Directors, I am pleased to
share our formal submission in response to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term
Care’s Patients First proposal. Our
focus remains, as it always has, on enhancing the home and community care experience
for patients, families and caregivers.
As the Ministry’s public
engagement process regarding system transformation draws to a close
(deadline is February 29th), I would encourage you, as a valued
stakeholder and health care partner, to ensure your voice is heard. Hospitals,
primary care, community support services, public health, and home and community
care – our collective expertise and experience can help identify opportunities
and risks, positively influence the coming changes, and shape the future of our
system for years to come.
R.M. (Ron) Farrell
