Details scarce on new health authority

The province now officially has just one health authority, but little has changed.

As of April 1, Eastern Health, Central Health, Western Health, Labrador-Grenfell Health and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information amalgamated into a singular health authority.

The new entity is known as Newfoundland and Labrador Health Services. It will streamline programs and services, as well as associated corporate services such as human resources, payroll and finance.

Specific regional issues will be maintained through the five regional health councils.

There are no immediate changes to health care services, facilities or contact information.

Few details have been released about what changes will take place and when.
