Leadership and partnership

Culturally competent organisations provide leadership and support partnerships with key stakeholders to support service provision to culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Queensland Health works in partnership with Multicultural Affairs Queensland and the community sector to improve the health status of CALD communities. Outcomes and key performance indicators related to multicultural health are also embedded in key Queensland Health strategic plans.

Complaints about health or other services

Do you have concerns about a government or non-government health service or are you unhappy with the way an issue has been handled?
Do you think you have been treated unfairly or are you concerned about a decision or action of a health professional?

It is ok to complain, and there are organisations that are independent of the government that can help you, free of charge.

Go to the Queensland Independent Complaint Agencies' website for more information.
