February 4, 2020

The ‘Patients 1st’ group will be hosting a ‘Health Plan Talk in the Park’ on Friday [Feb 7] at 12.30pm at Queen Elizabeth Park in Hamilton, with the organisers saying the event provides the opportunity for “people to be heard and to learn more about what health reform means to them.”

A spokesperson said, “Patients 1st Bermuda, a pressure group with 10,000 supporters to improve healthcare reform, is hosting a ‘Health Plan Talk in the Park’ this Friday Feb 7th.

“The group was started by concerned medical professionals and has now grown to a community force of patients, pharmacy owners, dentists, chiropractors, community leaders, business owners, charities and natural healers.

“Patients 1st Bermuda is now a community group working to ensure that the health needs of the already vulnerable are not further at risk from the unforeseen consequences of health reform financing, as set out in Bermuda Health Plan 2020.

“The movement has attracted people from all parts of the community beyond health care because of a community concern that Bermuda is at a crossroads on many volatile issues. In addition to healthcare, the community is concerned about immigration policy, energy regulation, international business, gaming, tourism, education, and criminal justice.

A Patient’s 1st organizer said; “With faith in each other and love in our hearts, we must now create an approach to healthcare reform that protects the vulnerable without reducing the quality of care.”

“Friday’s lunchtime event is open to all, regardless of your view about healthcare reform. The Talk in the Park is a way for people to be heard and to learn more about what health reform means to them. Everyone seems to have questions and this is an opportunity to share solutions.”

“This event will pay tribute to our 10,000 supporters by putting patients first, not politics.”

“The public is invited to bring their lunch to listen, share and learn at Queen Elizabeth Park, Queen Street – next to the Bermuda National Library – at 12.30pm to help shape the future of the Bermuda Health Plan 2020 for good.

“Speakers for the lunchtime event include community leaders, natural healers, performing artists and medical practitioners.”

The event will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Park [previously known as Par-la-Ville Park] on Queen Street in Hamilton, next to the Bermuda National Library.

    I get from reading here thet the Patients 1st group wishes to do topics outside of health, that are community subjects too. Good, reminds me of another social group now silent. Maybe they may change their name.
    One reason I’m Glad the Government are trying to setup a different type of Health Care for Bermuda is that it awakened the CONTENTED Doctors, Insurance Companies & Individuals who possibly also felt CHANGE WAS NOT NECESSARY! Now Bermuda may have BETTER health policies FOR ALL formed with more having had an input into it, NOT JUST THE CONTENTED!
