From the results collected from the survey, it found that many rural residents have difficulty travelling for care due to geographical and financial barriers as health care may not be locally available.

The survey also found that even if there is care available locally, care is not being properly provided due to staffing shortages at medical clinics.

The survey is on-going and residents can submit their thoughts through an online survey until March 2021.
