Province invests $3.6 million in primary health care innovation

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing $3.6 million to strengthen primary health care services in the province. To guide this work, the government also released the Framework for Achieving a High Performing Primary Health Care System in Saskatchewan.

"Our government is committed to the transformation of primary health care to better meet the needs of the patients, communities and health care providers," Health Minister Don McMorris said. "Our aim is a primary health care system that is sustainable, offers a superior patient experience and ensures better access to services as the foundation of our health system."

The funding announced today will support all Regional Health Authorities to improve access to primary health care providers and services and engage with partners and communities. Funding will also be allocated for designing and implementing innovative models of primary health care delivery in eight sites.

The eight primary health care learning sites, built on partnerships between health regions, communities and providers are located in Yorkton, Meadow Lake, Lloydminster, Leader, Regina-inner city, Moose Jaw, Fort Qu'Appelle and Whitecap Dakota First Nation. These sites are in different stages of establishing primary health care teams that will work collaboratively to better meet the needs of the patients and communities they serve with a focus on improved patient experience and increased access to care.
