Bermuda Health Council has filed its annual report for 2008/9.
The body, established in 2004 to oversee the Island’s essential health services, states that throughout 2008 it “embarked on a fresh mission to act as Bermuda’s agent for a well regulated, cost-effective and responsive health system”.
It states it is committed to helping create more affordable medical care, a safer and more reliable health regulatory environment and better health services planning for residents.
Chairman Linda Merritt stated: “We know that we must shape the public dialogue on health service planning and enhance delivery of medical services through technology and caring, and we must also protect the health interests of Bermuda residents by creating a more vigilant regulatory environment.”
