    Health Care Task Force host community feedback meeting

    The Western Manitoba Health Care Task Force, with membership from nine municipalities in southwestern Manitoba, will host a number of community information meetings to present their preliminary recommendations. The Task Force began meeting earlier this spring to develop recommendations to ensure a regional collective voice is presented to the Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living as the Minister guides a sustainability process for health services delivery in the province

    The Task Force’s nine members include:

    1. Boissevain-Morton Municipality
    2. Brenda-Waskada Municipality
    3. Cartwright-Roblin Municipality
    4. Deloraine-Winchester Municipality
    5. Killarney-Turtle Mountain Municipality
    6. Town of Melita
    7. RM of Pipestone
    8. RM of Prairie Lakes
    9. Two Borders Municipality.

    The Task Force will present eleven preliminary recommendations focused on three themes:

    1. emergency services
    2. access to care and senior’s housing
    3. long-term care 

    The Task Force is also proposing an on-going partnership between the members that would focus on supporting and advocating for health care services in the region.

    To provide an opportunity for round table feedback, a community information public meeting will be held in Boissevain on Tuesday, November 21 from 7-9pm at the Legion Hall. Similar meetings were held in Deloraine, Killarney, Cartwright and Melita.

    The Task Force is to present its final recommendations to member council’s by the end of the year. Recommendations approved by councils will be forwarded to the Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living early in the new year. See page 3 for more details.
