The Northern Health Region is conducting an Emergency Room Review Survey. Communications Coordinator Glenn Hildebrand says conducting an independent review of the Flin Flon and The Pas emergency departments was a recommendation from the review conducted by Manitoba Health a few years ago and the goal of the review is to develop an action plan to improve the service they provide in these emergency departments. He adds as part of the independent review that they’ve ordered they decided to add a public consultation component in the form of an online survey. He says it’s a way for the public to become involved in a focused way and provide information for the reviewers.
The survey is open until midnight November 15th and a summary of the results will be provided to the reviewers.
Hildebrand says the review should be completed by the end of the year and will be made public and the Health Region will begin acting on the recommendations without delay.
