A small group has been meeting for over a year to talk about establishing a single agency, in line with a recent call from the provincial government, to serve about 500,000 people in Southeastern Ontario.

Duncan Sinclair, who lives on Buck Lake, is the former Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Queen’s, and wrote a book about health care restructuring 20 years ago. He has been an advisor to the group.

Last week, the group met with 60 people from across Southeastern Ontario.

“The idea is to develop what the government is now calling a Health Team that includes hospitals, primary care, and home care services in one service entity that is responsive to community needs.,” he said.

The region that this group encompasses includes Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, Lennox and Addington, Frontenac, Lanark, and Leeds and Grenville Counties as well as the independent cites of Kingston and Belleville.
