Health & Wellness Plan

‘Namgis First Nation

‘Namgis First Nation is renewing our Health and Wellness Plan. This plan is used by all members of our health team to make decisions about programs and services for our community. This includes things like doctors, dentists, health awareness programs, flu shot clinics and the Treatment Centre.

OPEN HOUSE – October 5 2021

We are inviting every member of the community to an in-person open house on Tuesday, October 5 at the rec centre. This is your opportunity to learn about the health plan and to for us to share what we heard from you during the engagement that happened earlier this year. Members of the ‘Namgis Health Board, Chief and Council and Health Centre staff will all be at the open house to answer any questions and hear any additional input you have for the plan.

A summary of the plan can be found here: https://www.namgis.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Namgis-Health-Wellness-Plan-Summary.pdf

The draft goals and objectives of the plan can be found here: https://www.namgis.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Draft-Health-Plan-Goals-and-Objectives.pdf

We want to make sure everyone can join the open house, so it is scheduled for the late afternoon into the early evening.
