In February, a massive overhaul of how healthcare will be delivered in Ontario was announced. Fundamental to the plan is the creation of OHTs. These teams are being introduced to provide a new way of organizing and delivering care that is more connected to patients in their local communities. Locally, a group has joined together to plan for the creation of the Guelph and Area Ontario Health Team. After receiving preliminary approval from the Ministry of Health, the group is diligently working on a detailed full application due October 9.
