Organisation of Care
Our patient and their carers are our experts to provide insight into how well our service provides coordinated care as they journey through our health system. They are well equipped to inform us where we need to improve our processes and acknowledge what we are doing well. Patients and carers appreciate good coordination of care and feel they have received an excellent heath journey when they experience organised care.
