GNWT Healthcare changes

Aug 29th, 2014

 Members of the YK Seniors’ Society 

The Department of Health and Social Services is planning some significant changes to the health care system in the NWT. To this end they have released a document, Caring for Our People – Plans to improve the Northwest Territories Health and Social Services System. We urge members to read this brief document and offer their comments to the department. A brief survey prepared by HSS can be found on their website at

Our Advocacy Committee believes that health care services for seniors should be more prominent in the goals and objectives set out in the planning document. The aging population in the NWT will be a significant challenge to the system in the coming years and we believe that specific planning for those demands is essential if our system is to continue to deliver quality care. Take a moment to review the survey and consider letting HSS know how you feel.

 Sandra Taylor,   President, YK Seniors Society
