The Ministry of Health has called on the public to help develop the Bermuda Health Strategy 2020-2025 through an online survey.

Kim Wilson, the Minister of Health, said the survey would help the Government build its strategy for the next five years.

Ms Wilson said: “We want to make Bermuda healthier and, to do that, a shared vision for health is needed, one that inspires hope, trust and confidence across the community.

“As part of building that shared vision, public input is needed.

“Therefore, we are encouraging you, the public, to share your views about the current state of healthcare in Bermuda, and where you wish to see healthcare in Bermuda progress to in the future.”

The survey, available at www.forum.gov.bm, will be conducted and analysed by KPMG.

A Ministry spokeswoman said the survey will be part of a “rejuvenation” of the Bermuda Health Strategy which will also include stakeholder consultation in the first quarter of 2020.

The Bermuda Health Strategy 2020-2025 will succeed the Bermuda Health Strategy 2014-2019, a five-year strategy established to address 14 broad health system goals.

The proposed Bermuda Health Plan — which has been the subject of debate recently — was created as a result of the 2014-2019 strategy to achieve two of those goals; improve access to and sustainability of healthcare.

The Ministry spokeswoman said: “The BHP is focused only on financing reform. The strategy is focused on the broader health system including, for example, prevention and long term care.”
