Lacombe residents invited to share views on local healthcare delivery

Feedback welcome at David Thompson Health Advisory Council meeting

Local and area residents are invited to attend a meeting of the David Thompson Health Advisory Council (HAC) on January 10, 2019. This is an opportunity for the public to meet council members, provide feedback on health services, share views about local healthcare delivery and propose ideas for improvements.

Public feedback will be shared with local Alberta Health Services (AHS) leaders to inform their decision-making.

The meeting runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre, in the Boardroom, 5430 47 Avenue, Lacombe. The council will hear from members of the public starting at 1:10 p.m.

HACs play an important role in supporting the strategic direction of AHS by engaging members of their communities throughout Alberta in a respectful, transparent and accountable manner.

Public participation is essential to improving the quality and accountability of health services. Working in partnership with AHS is an important way to ensure services are more responsive to the needs of those who use them.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
