A Northern Health Region implementation team is being formed to follow up on recommendations made following the death of Brian Sinclair who died over six years ago during a 34 hour wait in a Winnipeg emergency room.
The Northern Health Regions Chief Executive Officer Helga Bryant says a 195 page judicial inquest report into the death released last Friday contains 63 recommendations many of which apply to health regions around the province. Bryant adds this report provides a catalyst for change that health care staff will use to improve how they deliver services in the north, how they construct their facilities and how they ensure the highest quality of care is provided day in and day out.
The Implementation team will be led by Helga Bryant with additional team members drawn from all parts of the Region and will begin work immediately. Their work is expected to continue well into next year.
