Dear Minister Hoskins,
On behalf of the member associations of the Ontario Primary Care Council (OPCC), we again congratulate you on Patients First: A proposal to strengthen patient-centred health care in Ontario.
OPCC has worked together over the past several weeks to develop advice on the following key areas in Patients First: A proposal to strengthen patient-centred health care in Ontario:
As leaders of primary care, we commit to working with you to implement a coherent plan. We want to partner and collaborate closely with the Ministry and the LHINs to deliberately develop a plan to strengthen primary care as the foundation of the system.
Thank you once again for the opportunity to provide our vision and recommendations. It is our hope that our feedback will inform the upcoming changes as they relate to primary care evolution. OPCC members look forward to continuing to work with you, the Ministry staff, LHINs, our memberships and other stakeholders to achieve the promise of the Patients First proposal.
