Have Your Say in Health System Restructuring

Saskatchewan residents and interested organizations are invited to provide feedback to the recently-announced advisory panel examining the restructuring of Saskatchewan’s health care system.

On August 18, the Minister of Health appointed a three person advisory panel to review the current Regional Health Authority (RHA) structure and provide advice on a system with fewer RHAs in Saskatchewan.  The panel will also look at services that could be delivered more efficiently and effectively on a provincial scale, examine RHA board governance and accountability, and identify ways to enhance measurement of health system performance.
