Update: Northern Neighbours Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic
The Township of White River and Pic Mobert First Nation entered into a Memorandum of Understanding that outlined our joint willingness to work together to find alternative ways to provide health care to our neighbouring communities.
A team was formed to undertake the task. In late 2017 the team developed a Business Case and submitted it through the North East Local Health Integrated Network for Inter-professional Primary Care Funding.
In April 2018 the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) advised that we were successful in our bid for funding. We are set to receive:
- 1 Clinic Administrator
- 2 Nurse Practitioners
- 1 Registered Nurse
- 1 Social Worker
- 1 Administrative Assistant
The Founding Board (the team) applied for Incorporation status for the NNNPLC.
A Request for Proposal (RFP) was sent out in May 2018 in search of a consultant to assist with the start-up. The mandate includes:
- Human Resources – recruitment of health care professionals
- Creation of Policies and Procedures
- Develop the merging of services between the two existing clinics
- Clinic programs – ie diabetes, foot care, etc.
A consultant was contracted in August 2018. More information and job postings will be available shortly! The new NNNPLC is on its way to reality.
