Burin Primary Health-Care Initiative

As part of its Strategic Plan 2017-2020, Eastern Health is committed to ensuring access to quality primary health care services throughout the eastern region. This new initiative provides individuals and communities with an opportunity to partner with us, as we identify renewed priorities and goals on the Burin Peninsula - aimed at a transformed model of primary health care, which can be sustained into the future.
What is primary health care?
Primary health care includes services that promote health and wellness, prevent illness, treat health issues or injuries, and diagnose and manage chronic health conditions. It includes interactions with health-care providers such as family doctors, pharmacists, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, counselors, community volunteers and others. 
Burin Peninsula Community Consultations
In follow-up to Eastern Health’s Burin Peninsula community consultations, held May 1-3, 2017, regarding primary health-care services, below is an information booklet about primary health care on the Burin Peninsula. Please follow the link to learn about what we have planned in the coming weeks and months:
We have also included a link to the survey questions used during the consultations. The survey is open to everyone who lives in the Burin Peninsula area, regardless of whether they attended the sessions or not. We encourage residents to take this opportunity to provide input. The survey closes May 26, 2017
Information collected from both the public consultations, along with the survey results, will be compiled into a report and shared with all participants in the near future. Stay tuned to this website for updates regarding this initiative.
