Te Whatu Ora - Waitematā works hard to provide the best possible patient experience to the many people who use our services.
Our Consumer Council was set-up to assist us in our ongoing drive for excellence – helping us focus on a patient and whānau-centred approach to everything that we do.
The Consumer Council provides a strong and viable voice for the community and consumers, working in partnership with the DHB on healthcare planning, quality improvements and service delivery.
Consumer Council members have varied backgrounds and areas of interest within the community including women's health, men’s health, child health, older persons health, disabilities, chronic conditions, mental health and addictions, LGBTI, Māori health, Pacific peoples’ health and Asian health.
Meeting 6 weekly, members are appointed for a fixed term (normally two years with the potential for reappointment up to a maximum of three terms).
