The Health Coalition of Alberta submitted an Access to Care document as part of the recent Alberta Health Services Review. We look forward to hearing the results of this review after the report is tabled with government in December, 2019. You can read our concerns here.
We also provided a pre-budget submission to the Government of Alberta in October, 2019 based on all three of our advocacy priorities and recommendations. We will continue to work with MLAs on these recommendations.
The Red Tape Reduction submission process is one that is open to all Albertans. The Government of Alberta encourages us to provide feedback on ways they can reduce red tape but also suggestions for cost savings and system improvements. The Health Coalition of Alberta is developing recommendations for this process. If you would like to provide comment directly to government you can do so here https://www.alberta.ca/cut-red-tape.aspx
