Prefect applauds plan to decentralize healthcare
Lamarche has called for decentralized healthcare since 2015
Prefect of the MRC de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, Chantal Lamarche, is applauding Premier François Legault for his recent announcement that the province would be decentralizing the health network.
Legault made the announcement in his inaugural speech to the National Assembly on Oct. 19, promising to transfer power and decision making to local health authorities.
“The people who are best placed to choose the best ways to meet our objectives are those on the ground, those who are close to the action,” Legault told the legislature.
