NCLGA Executive Recommendation: Endorse | Endorsed by the NCLGA Membership
Whereas accessible health care is a cornerstone for providing quality of life for the residents of British Columbia and supports economic prosperity and sustainability of communities; and
Whereas access to quality health care without financial or other barriers is critical to maintaining and improving the health and well-being of all Canadians under the Canada Health Act;
Therefore be it resolved that NCLGA and UBCM petition the provincial government for an independent operational performance review of the Health Authorities to assess the distribution and level of health care services provided, the distribution of administrative services within services delivery areas, the effectiveness of support services for health care professionals, the scope and effectiveness of recruitment and retention policies, and the sustainability of health care from the scope of emerging trends in the delivery of health care services.
