The Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Ontario Health Team (FLA OHT) is made up of over 300 health-care providers and organizations working together to create a better health-care system to improve health outcomes and provide better health-care experiences. To set priorities and actions for the next several years, the FLA OHT is seeking public input to ensure the future health-care system delivers what residents need and want.

“We need to understand the challenges and successes that people experience in their health-care journeys to be able to co-design a more efficient, integrated and equitable health-care system that meets their needs,” says Dr. Kim Morrison, FLA OHT Executive Lead. “We have an incredible partnership of health-care providers, community members, patients, caregivers and their families working together to improve quality and access to care and now we need to hear from the broader public that we serve.”

To continue to understand what matters most to people about their health care and to address mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social health and wellness needs, the FLA OHT is soliciting resident feedback to help shape the future health-care system.
