The Sun Country Regional Health Authority (SCHRA) has concluded a series of public consultations that it held in communities in April.
SCRHA board chair Marilyn Charlton said the consultations were informative, both for members of the regional health authority, and for residents who attended.
“We invited the public and representatives from every elected municipal board in the region to attend and bring local health care issues and questions to us,” said Charlton. “We were pleased with the keen discussions held each evening.”
Estevan's meeting was held on April 24.
The meetings are held in the spring and fall of each year, in four locations within the region.
At each meeting, Sun Country Health Region president and CEO Marga Cugnet provided information on the four new improvement projects chosen for the upcoming fiscal year. Vice-president John Knock supplied a report card on last year’s improvement projects.
And local nurse practitioners outlined a history of their profession, and the scope of the practice they offer to their communities.
“We look forward to these sessions each year,” said Charlton. “We believe they are productive for both the public and members of the regional health authority.”
