To provide a coordinated voice of Consumer/Survivor initiatives (CSls) and Consumer/Survivor organizations (CSOs)to the Central LHIN and to advocate for the needs of Consumer/Survivor Initiatives and Consumer/Survivor organizations
By engaging with our local peer community we can identify needs and priorities which will assist the LHIN in planning changes and service improvements; coordinating integration of health services; funding local health care services and enhancing overall performance in the Health System.
What is a LHIN?
The Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is one of 14 LHINs established by the Government of Ontario in 2006 to plan, coordinate, integrate and fund health services at the local level.
For Ontario’s health care system, this means that people are receiving the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This is being achieved through the LHINs by putting local health dollars where they are most needed, based on community and provincial priorities.
YOUR VOICE IS IMPORTANT
