Consumer and community engagement
Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service (TCHHS) is committed to engaging with consumers and the community in a respectful and purposeful manner that embraces diversity. 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.
Consumer and community engagement strategy

Both this strategy and the Clinician Engagement Strategy 2019-2021 (PDF 2151 kB) support the health service to deliver effective, person-centred care to the diverse individuals and the communities we serve.
