Saskatchewan’s ombudsman still taking healthcare complaints
2017-12-07 from globalnews.ca
Saskatchewan’s ombudsman says although the province has moved to one health region, her office is still taking health complaints.
Mary McFadyen said it is important for people to know there is an impartial office to deal with administrative complaints.
“It is important for people to know there is an independent and impartial office that they can contact if they think a public health provider has been unfair to them, and they have been unable to resolve it,” McFadyen said in a release.
“We are still here and our mandate in health remains the same.”
McFadyen said her office will become involved in a complaint if it has not been first resolved by the Saskatchewan Health Authority or a public health provider.
The ombudsman office also takes complaints about the Ministry of Health, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, e-Health, and other public health entities.
