Community and patient consultation on clinical services

Over the past year we have worked with our patients and our community as we began to shape the future of care in Scarborough. Together, we have developed our inaugural strategic plan and have created our new, unified, identity as Scarborough Health Network. Community engagement is a crucial part of how we reach decisions that will ultimately define health care delivered today and in years ahead.

We are proud to announce the launch of community and patient consultations for our clinical services review. Along with the community, our teams across our hospital sites are working closely to determine the future designs of our clinical programs.

The first program to undertake a comprehensive review will be our Women’s and Children’s program.

Working with nurses, midwives, obstetricians and gynecologists, anaesthesiologists, paediatricians and other front-line staff, we are committed to transparency in our decision-making and ensuring the units and community are at the forefront of this process.

Patient-centred care requires engagement, information, and feedback from our patients, community and your networks.

We encourage community members to provide feedback through an online survey. This feedback will ensure our decision-making is informed by those who know the impact of our work best – the people from Scarborough and and our region who access services at our hospital.

Start survey

We also welcome general feedback about our Women’s and Children’s program. Please feel free to contact Linda Calhoun, Vice President, Clinical Programs and Chief Nursing Executive at lcalhoun@tsh.to or Glyn Boatswain, Director, Women’s and Children’s Health at gboatswain@rougevalley.ca by October 22.
