In the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region there are eight family physician practices participating in the collaborative and three non-practice organizations including MEDEC, the Lipid Clinic and All Nations Healing Hospital.

North Central Shared Facility

The Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region is working with the North Central Shared Facility Steering Committee to develop and implement a plan for a shared facility in north central Regina. The Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region's North Central Primary Health Care team is working with other human service providers who will offer a wide range of services to the people of North Central Regina from the one location.

The North Central Shared Facility Steering Committee has representatives from the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region, North Central Community Association, the City of Regina, Regina Public Schools, Regina Police Service, Regina Public Library, Scott Infant and Toddler Care Centre, Regina Education and Action on Child Hunger (REACH), Ministry of Education (on behalf of Ministry of Social Services and Ministry of Corrections, Public Safety and Policing), and Regina Catholic Schools.

SEARCH

SEARCH (Student Energy in Action for Regina Community Health) is an interdisciplinary, student-run health care and education project that operates from the Four Directions Community Health Centre in the North Central community of Regina. Weekly shifts run on Saturdays which fills a gap when primary health care services are typically not available in this community. The project includes mentors and student volunteers representing a variety of health and related disciplines from the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan and SIAST.

SEARCH offers a unique opportunity for students to teach and learn from each other, from professionals in their own and other disciplines, but most importantly from the residents of the community in which they work. The emphasis is not only on providing primary health care but also on health education programming to address the determinants of health.
