Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) is planning another re-tendering of the home support contract for the South Island Health Service delivery area. They have sent out a request for proposals with a deadline of December 6, 2013. VIHA plans to announce the successful bidder on January 31, 2014 and they will commence full service delivery by April 1, 2014.
BCGEU is monitoring VIHA’s home support re-tendering process closely. Seniors depend on the important services that Beacon Community Services BCGEU members provide and the union is advocating strongly for stability for community health in the region.
We will keep members updated as the process unfolds.
