Consumer Engagement

Your health service needs you!The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) is committed to 'working with' rather than  'doing to' people.

We want to involve consumers (patients, carers, family members) in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of our hospital and health services, contributing to more efficient and effective healthcare delivery.

It helps us to:

  • better plan, design and deliver services that meet the needs of the people who use them
  • improve the safety, quality and accessibility of our health services
  • gather feedback about programs, services, initiatives and reforms
  • empower local communities to have a voice in service planning, design and delivery.

We will work collaboratively with consumers to provide engagement processes that are appropriate for those involved, the issues at hand and the decisions to be made.
