St. Stephen – A community information session on primary health care will be held at the Garcelon Civic Center tonight starting at 6:30 p.m.
In September, the government announced the services of Ambulance New Brunswick, the Extra-Mural Program and Tele-Care 811 were being integrated to help manage primary health-care needs.
Effective Jan. 1, Medavie Health Services New Brunswick will manage the operations of Ambulance New Brunswick and the Extra-Mural Program, and will leverage the services of Tele-Care 811 to improve co-ordination of these services.
Nine community information sessions concerning this initiative are being held throughout the province. Representatives of the government and Medavie are participating, as are health-care professionals.
