We value every voice

Whether you’re a patient, carer or student, if you are interested in the quality of health care and the services Northern Health provides, we would like to hear from you.

Consider volunteering on our Consumer Network to contribute to improving the experience of our patients and our health service.

“I feel I have a voice” – Faye (Consumer Network Member).

Northern Health is committed to improving the quality of care we provide to our patients and their families. For us to do this, we want to know what’s important to you as a patient or carer when it comes to health care.

Our community is what drives us. We are always looking to work with community members who are passionate about making a difference, giving back and sharing their feedback. We value diversity and encourage your input regardless of your background or perceived skills.


How can you help?

Being involved with our committees and groups, is a great way to have your say and meet community members. It’s also an opportunity to learn more and contribute to your local health service.

You don’t have to be involved in a continuous role. You are welcome to come along to one of our open community meetings to tell us what matters to you and your community.

Volunteer your time and expertise.  Get involved, have your say and make a difference as a consumer today!
