If so, please take advantage of this opportunity to HAVE YOUR SAY.

North Simcoe Muskoka is experiencing a shortage of personal support workers. The North Simcoe Muskoka  Local Health Integration Network (NSM LHIN) understands and values the important role that you play in  ensuring timely access to high quality care for the patients, clients and residents that you serve. We are  committed to working with you to understand the factors that are contributing to the shortage and to identify where change is necessary. To do that we need to hear from you.

The North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN is hosting a series of personal support focus groups. Join us at one of the 11 sessions happening across the region and BE HEARD (dates, times and locations are listed below).
