Public Urged To Complete Health Strategy Survey

January 16, 2020 | 4 Comments

Today [Jan 16] the Minister of Health Kim Wilson invited members of the public to complete the Bermuda Health Strategy Public Survey at www.forum.gov.bm as part of the community consultation to set Bermuda’s vision and strategy for health for 2020 – 2025.

“The survey will be conducted and analysed by KPMG and is part of a rejuvenation of the Bermuda Health Strategy which will also include stakeholder consultation in the first quarter of 2020,” the Ministry noted.

Minister Wilson said, “The Ministry of Health has commenced an update of the Bermuda Health Strategy 2020-2025. We want to make Bermuda healthier and, to do that, a shared vision for health is needed, one that inspires hope, trust and confidence across the community.

“As part of building that shared vision, public input is needed. Therefore, we are encouraging you – the public – to share your views about the current state of healthcare in Bermuda, and where you wish to see healthcare in Bermuda progress to in the future.”

The survey will conclude on January 31, 2020.

As a note, the Health Strategy differs from the Bermuda Health Plan [BHP] as the Bermuda Health Strategy 2014 – 2019 is a 5-year strategy to address 14 broad health system goals, of which health financing reform and universal coverage are 2 goals, while the Bermuda Health Plan comes under the “auspices of the broader strategy to address health financing reform.”

The Strategy can be found here and here. The BHP can be found here.

    Why? The Minister has had no end of surveys, public meetings, input and people signing petitions, all of which have been ignored. What would make this different? It sounds as if the PLP have realized their proposal to reform Health is a non starter and are playing for time. Rather like Immigration reform. Continue to delay to avoid making a decision.

    Why ? The PLP has documented and made it clear that they have their agenda. They have not listened to anyone or any group thusfar. If this was the OBA there would have been marches, strikes, people’s campaign press releases, church group and unions protesting. It has been obvious to everyone including the PLP that the people do not want this and have not asked for this! So why the push to do something that nobody asked for or wants? Who is REALLY going to benefit from this?
    Why would I waste my time on something that you probably won’t read, won’t share or do anything with? I’m sorry but most of us have real jobs and aren’t getting paid to BS . Thanks but no thanks.

    Like BOB said, you can fool some people some times but you can’t fool all the people all the time.

    When you are finally able to access the link to the survey … it’s complicated…
    Asking the general public these complex technical questions will hardly be of use to anyone… I don’t understand what the survey is trying to achieve in asking leading and hypothetical questions about how you think health care should be…so let’s not count on this to help figure out health care in Bermuda as I don’t believe they will
    Obtain any reliable data from it
    Take it and tell me if I am wrong!

    There appears to be no survey at the website in the article.
