Councillor Lee’s response to the Expert Panel report

In light of the Final Report of the Scarborough/West Durham Panel led by Dr. Barry McLellan, I have submitted a letter to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Dr. Eric Hoskins on behalf of Scarborough Community Council, supporting and urging implementations of the recommendations outlined in the Expert Panel report. There is an urgent need to update the healthcare infrastructure in Scarborough and investing to improve services to meet the growing needs. Please find the signed letter here.
