Paramedicine program helping out North Island residents

The Community Paramedicine Initiative is proving successful on the North Island.

Port Hardy was one of the first communities chosen to roll-out the new program, which expands the role of paramedics to provide in-home care in non-urgent settings.

Spokesperson Jamie Keamo says the program has made a big difference in health care services, since it began in April 2015.

Keamo says one of the biggest challenges for the program is a lack of knowledge that it exists.
