On Friday 16 October, we held our Annual General Meeting where our Annual Report 2014/15 was released and the Hon. Jillian Skinner MP, NSW Minister for Health, officially launched the Consumers Toolkit
This toolkit was developed through a joint project
between Health Consumers NSW
and is intended to provide consumers and communities with tools and resources to help them engage with each other and with health services.
The consumers toolkit is filled with tools and tips to equip health consumers who wish to take the first step in really making a difference to improve our health system.
Minister Skinner said “This is [really] a very important next step with engagement of consumers. One of the key priorities of our government is to improve the safety and quality of healthcare by delivering truly integrated patient-centred care.
“It’s important for all health consumers to know that they have a right to ask questions, to be listened to and to be informed about their healthcare.”
The consumers toolkit
is available on our website. For more information or feedback about the toolkit, please contact us
