The Northern Health Region is accepting applications for members of a Local Health Involvement Group. CEO Helga Bryant explains the legislation defines the group as a team established specifically to explore and provide advice to the Board of the Regional Health Authority on issues that impact the delivery of local health services. She says it really is to get the community perspective on their health needs, the existing health services and how those things might be altered and give that advice to the Board.
Bryant adds any member of the community who is not a staff person for the Health Region can apply with applications available on their website www.northernhealthregion.ca or call the regional office in your community. The deadline is next Monday.
