Tasmanian health consumer organisation

Tasmanian health consumer organisation

The aim of Tasmania’s new health consumer organisation is to provide an independent and credible health consumer voice within the Tasmanian health system.

The organisation came about after key stakeholder and community consultation to determine the need for such an organisation in Tasmania.

This was followed by extensive work between Primary Health Tasmania, the Tasmanian Health Service and the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services to reach agreement on the ongoing resourcing for consumer engagement across the health system.

Get involved

The Tasmanian health consumer organisation will build meaningful partnerships between health consumers and the Tasmanian heath sector, and acknowledges that building a better health system principled around active consumer participation in their own health care takes time.
