Consumer and Community Engagement
Healthcare belongs to the people and communities it serves. The Townsville Hospital and Health Service understands that health services that involve the community in their design, delivery and care are safer, stronger and better. By engaging with our patients, consumers, carers, families and communities, we can deliver and design better healthcare and improve the healthcare environment.
The Townsville HHS values the ideas and opinions of our consumers and community.
