Attending group meetings

Our community reference groups meet every 2 months at local hospitals or health centres, and sometimes online.

During meetings, you'll have an hour so to talk to hospital representatives about local priorities and ways to improve health care.

Members are passionate about the quality and safety of health care. They voice the community’s needs and concerns at each meeting.

Other ways to connect

We have many other consumer groups, networks and committees that you can join. If you'd like to find out more about upcoming opportunities, you can register your interest using our online form.
