What our Friends have told us

COORDINARE is always looking for people interested in helping shape and improve the health system. We’re keen to listen and understand what’s working (or not working - and why).

Over the past few years, we’ve received feedback in a variety of ways including our former Consumer Health Panel, which provided local community members with the opportunity to be part of an online survey each month on a range of important health care issues.

We then used the responses to get a snapshot of how people feel about a range of issues in their local communities, from self-managed care to mental health and drug and alcohol issues.

Community feedback helps us better align services with community needs. Below is some of the feedback that we’ve collected to date.

If you’d like to be part of future workshops, attend training and discussions or just receive information from time to time, then sign up to our Friends of COORDINARE group.
