How would you rate cardiac care in Northeast B.C.?
It's something Northern Health wants to know, and officials will be in the region this week for a round of community consultations on prevention services, treatment, and hospital care.
“Our board continues to be committed to hearing from residents,” Colleen Nyce, Northern Health board chair, said in a news release.
“Heart health affects all of us, and we want to know what works, might work, or we can do better.”
Consultations are planned for:
- Sept. 17 in Fort Nelson, at the Northern Rockies Rec Centre from 7 to 9 p.m.;
- Sept. 18 in Fort St. John, at the North Peace Cultural Centre from 7 to 9 p.m.;
- Sept. 19 in Dawson Creek, at the Fixx Urban Grill from 7 to 9 p.m.; and
- Sept. 20 in Chetwynd, at the Pine Valley Senior's Rec Centre from 7 to 9 p.m.
This is the the eighth community consultation Northern Health has held since 2004 to understand patient wants and needs, and feedback will help to inform planning and decision making.
Consultation goals include providing information about heart health and available services, and the priorities of residents and the barriers they face in accessing care.
The sessions are free to attend. Refreshments will be served.
