Renfrew County has pitched their case to the Province to make RC VTAC a permanent service.
Warden Debbie Robinson, Health committee chair Michal Donohue and chief parametric Michael Nolan met with Minister of Health Christine Elliot and MPP John Yakabuski to discuss the Virtual Triage. Warden Robinson says they were encouraged by the conversation with the minister, while MPP Yakabuski says any proposal that will improve health care access should be looked into.
Chair Donohue has said that 30,000 people in Renfrew County may be without a family physician, and that RC VTAC is a model that can be easily copied across the province.
