Consumer and Community Engagement
Building meaningful relationships between patients, carers, consumers and the hospital and health service
The Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service is committed to providing meaningful opportunities for patients, carers and consumers to have a say on health care services coordinated by the Service.
Community engagement extends beyond informing patients, carers and community members.
Patients, carers and community stakeholders’ engagement initiatives undertaken by the Health Service are underpinned by a number of national and state legislatives, standards and policies.
There are numerous ways that patients, carers and members of the community can get involved in the activities coordinated by the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service.
