Mid West Ontario Health Team Recruitment

Mid West Ontario Health Team Recruitment

Patient Partners / Caregiver Partners Posting

The Mid-West Toronto Ontario Health Team (MWT-OHT) is looking for people of all walks of life who have met challenges and/or obstacles getting the care they, or a loved one, needed. We are recruiting people who want to take these experiences to help make it easier for others in similar positions.

We work alongside our Patient and Caregiver Partners to reimagine a healthcare system that is easier to navigate, more equitable and produces better outcomes for all. To achieve that, we believe the planning we do needs to be informed by people with lived experience.

Our Patient and Caregiver Partners do not need previous experience working in healthcare. 

These paid positions are open to patients and caregivers who accessed health and social services in our region. Our Patient and Caregiver Partners are embedded into every working group and table of the OHT, helping to contribute their ideas and priorities on all aspects of our work. They will also sit at a table with their Patient and Caregiver colleagues to connect, share learnings and collaborate.
