Letters: CHI initiative goes back to 2103

Survey of health care needs in Sooke is not a new project

It was with interest that members of the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative (CHI) read the article entitled “Doctors initiate survey on health care needs”, which appeared in the Sooke News Mirror on April 9, 2014.  In fact, this community survey was launched in November 2013 in the Sooke region following the highly successful Community Forum on Primary Health Care Services that was co-sponsored by CHI and the South Island Division of Family Practice.  The survey questionnaire was distributed at the forum, and at locations throughout Sooke including the Sooke Family Resource Society and the West Coast Family Medical Clinic.  In addition, the Sooke Region Community Resource Inventory promoted an online version.  Approximately 140 surveys were completed by residents of Sooke and the surrounding areas, which we consider to be an excellent response to a lengthy questionnaire.

South Island Division wishes to increase the response rate to the questionnaire by re-launching the survey in conjunction with the Victoria Division of Family Practice.  Results will be separated out by region.  CHI believes it is important to thank the people and agencies in Sooke and the surrounding communities who have already participated in this important initiative.  You do not need to complete another survey to register for better health care services.

People in Sooke Region who have not completed the survey can still to do so online at: https://fluidsurveys.com/s/SouthIslandCommunitySurvey.
