Representatives from the South West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) will be in Kincardine next week to talk to residents about improvements they would like to see made to health care.
The South West LHIN is in the process of developing its third integrated health service plan for the period of 2013 to 2016. The plan will consider priorities, strategies and proposed outcomes for the region’s health care, and will be implemented over the next three years. The LHIN will focus on a number of priorities, including improving access to family health care; improving the co-ordination of health care delivery; implementing best practices; and improving wait times for emergency care, surgery and diagnostics.
The plan is expected to be presented to the South West LHIN board of directors in November. Once it’s approved by the board, the document will be released to the public.
A public meeting will be held Sept. 13 at the Davidson Centre from 7-9 p.m.
