Nova Scotians: Have your say on health care!

The Government of Nova Scotia wants input on how to restructure the health care system in the province. Fill out the online survery to make sure your voice is heard. 

Halifax (24 July 2014) — As part of the planned restructuring of the District Health Authorities, the Nova Scotia government is seeking additional input from Nova Scotians through an online survey. The government announced this new input process in early July 2014.

The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU/NUPGE) is encouraging all union members – not just health care workers – to take a few moments to fill out the survey, which consists of just three questions:

  • In your view, what’s the best way to ensure local voices are heard?
  • The health needs of every community differs. How can we best respond to changing health needs?
  • What’s the single most important initiative needed to build a healthier community?

People can fill out the survey online here

The government says the input collected via the survey “will help to further inform our consolidation plans. We are building a system that values local input and healthy communities.”

Don't miss this opportunity to have your say on the future of health care in Nova Scotia!
