Survey concerns

Vancouver Island Health Authority needs to answer some questions

As regards the VIHA Strategic Initiatives Survey, I would like some further information on this, please.

• Is this survey being completely financed by Dalhousie University?

• If not is this investigation (survey) being done under a contract from VIHA?

• If so, can you divulge the value of the contract?

• Having perused the survey, it would appear that this info could easily have been compiled from info available thru normal health care facilities unless the limit on personal info somehow would inhibit the process.

• This may be out of your purview, but why so much interest now when there didn’t appear to be much value in public input when the Oceanside Health Centre was being planned over two years ago?
