Looking for medical advice

Untitled-1British Columbians enjoy high standards of health care, including the longest life expectancy and the lowest rates of obesity, smoking, and infant mortality in Canada. Maintaining a strong health care system which meets the needs of all citizens is a priority for all British Columbians.

Health care is the single largest area of provincial spending, accounting for almost 40 percent of total government spending.

BC’s Legislative Assembly has tasked the all-party Select Standing Committee on Health with identifying strategies for maintaining the sustainability and quality of BC’s health care system.

The committee is asking British Columbians to share their ideas on how we can continue to ensure the sustainability and improvement of our health care system. In order to focus the consultation we are seeking submissions that address any or all of the following questions:

*How can we improve health and health care services in rural British Columbia? In particular, what long-term solutions can address the challenges of recruitment and retention of health care professionals in rural British Columbia?

*How can we create a cost-effective system of primary and community care built around interdisciplinary teams?

*What best practices can be implemented to improve end-of-life care?

*How can we enhance the effectiveness of addiction recovery programs?

Submissions should include an explanation of the anticipated benefits and a justification of the costs involved.

To make a submission to the Committee or learn more about our work please visit our website at The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2014.
