Consumer and Community Engagement Strategy 2020 – 2023

The Eyre and Far North LHN (EFNLHN) Governing Board has approved the EFNLHN Consumer and Community Engagement Strategy 2020 – 2023. The Strategy was developed after consultation with local communities, consumers and Health Advisory Councils.

EFNLHN values the positive contributions that consumers, carers and local communities make to improve local health services. Listening to consumers helps to make changes that benefit the local community and tailors services to their needs.
