The Ontario Health Coalition (OHC) is holding holding public hearings across the province. Your input will be used to help create a report on reforming hospitals in the public interest which will be released publicly in the fall. Recommendations from the hearings will be used to measure the political parties’ health care plans leading into next spring’s provincial election across the province. All individuals who access or work in health care, or the organizations representing them, are invited to attend and provide oral or written submissions on reforming Ontario’s hospitals in the public interest.
Deadline for booking a space for oral presentation to give your input at the hearings: Friday October 6, 5 p.m. Spaces are 10 minutes per person. To book a time to make an oral submission, people have to call the Local Health Coalition in their area or the Ontario Health Coalition at (416)-441-2502 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for written submissions: Friday October 27, 5 p.m. Written submissions can be as informal as a hand-written note. All submissions will be accepted.
People are invited to come and observe the hearings. There will be time set aside for audience participation and last-minute submissions on a first-come first-served basis.
