Consumer and Community Engagement

SA Health values the importance of engaging with consumers and the community, a culture of caring, learning and supporting employees to actively engage and partner with consumers and the community. SA Health is raising awareness of the positive contributions consumers and the community are making to improve health service, quality, equality and management.

SA Health is committed to two way communications that involves listening to consumers, carers and the community, keeping them informed and being clear about how their contributions are being used.
