Several months ago, Lorraine Burch, General Manager of Our Health Centre in Chester came to Tancook to meet with residents to discuss issues and concerns regarding health services. After the meeting, Lorraine lobbied on our behalf and, as a result, we are pleased share a few developments with you.
After an extended suspension of services, the VON has agreed to return to Tancook should a resident require their services. The VON Tri-County office number is 902-742-4512.
There is also a Palliative Care team willing to come to Tancook should their services be required. This can be arranged through a referral from your family doctor.
In order to resume these services, we had to comply with a standard risk assessment given to all communities for which these services are requested. The primary concern was safe transportation of service providers. Among the required criteria were current police checks for drivers as well as vehicle insurance.
Our voices were heard and this is good news for all Tancook residents.
