Service Review documents released
April 7, 2014
Oxford County is releasing the planning documents and final report for the Woodingford Lodge Service Review. This includes:
Correspondence to Premier of Ontario and Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
Letter to Premier of Ontario and Minister of Health & Long-Term Care (April 4, 2012)
One of the recommendations adopted by County Council on March 26 included advocating for regulatory reform to give municipalities greater control in how they deliver long-term care. This would include:
- allowing municipalities to opt out of providing long-term care, a service they are required to offer under current legislation;
- offering municipalities greater flexibility in some operating decisions;
- the ability to influence how long-term care beds are consolidated in a community; and
- appropriate funding levels to support municipal long-term care.
A letter to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Health & Long-Term Care Deborah Matthews summarizing the reasons Oxford County is asking for legislative and regulatory reform was issued on April 4 from Oxford County Warden Don McKay.
