I have a concern about the care I or someone I care about has received in Prairie North Health Region. What can I do?
We encourage you to first try to resolve the issue by talking to the caregiver providing the service, or to the appropriate supervisor. If your concern remains unresolved, then please contact a Quality of Care Coordinator. All questions, concerns or comments will be investigated.
The quality of your care will not be negatively affected if you raise a concern. In fact, sharing your concern will help us improve our services both for you and for future patients and clients.
Click here to submit your concern by email. Your email will be delivered to Prairie North Health Region's Quality Improvement Program, and you'll receive a response from a Quality of Care Coordinator within 3 business days.
In your email, please include your name, along with your compliment or concern (with as much or as little detail as you are comfortable sharing through email). Please remember to include the name of the facility where you received care, and indicate if and how (phone or email - please specify the number and email address) you would like to be contacted to further discuss your experience.
