Inform, Involve, Influence

What is the purpose of the consumer council?

The Consumer Council will have input in to, and be consulted about, a variety of aspects of health service provision and policy. This input will assist with planning, promoting, and providing services that meet the needs of our community.

The Consumer Council will be a strong and viable voice in the planning and provision of health services across South Canterbury. Using the banner of “Inform, Involve, Influence,” it is envisaged that the Consumer Council will have both a communication role and a quality improvement role, with the focus being on community engagement and the promotion of innovation and best practice.
