KAMLOOPS — The Thompson Region Division of Family Practice says more work needs to be done to deliver primary care to local residents.

Rhonda Eden with the family practice division says in a news release that the expansion of Kamloops's urgent primary care centre at Royal Inland Hospital is great news for local patients, but there are still steps that need to be taken toward optimal healthcare delivery.

As part of this work, the Thompson Region Division of Family Practice wants local patients to share their voices on the future of care across Thompson communities. A survey is being conducted by the division from now until Nov. 15, asking people to share what's important to them about primary healthcare.

Survey questions will cover topics like clinic access to care, patient experience and services provided by allied health practitioners like dieticians and physiotherapists.

You can go here to take the survey, and participants will have the chance to win a 32 GB Apple iPad 9.7

The division is also hosting two open houses where residents can learn more about the project, as well as provide feeback and take the survey. The open houses will be held at Abderdeen Mall on Oct. 12 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Northills Mall on Oct. 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
