The Consumer Council works collaboratively with the Hauora Tairāwhiti Chief Executive and Board and makes sure health consumers are heard by the people making the decisions.
The Council will work collaboratively to improve the flow of information both to and from Hauora Tairāwhiti as an intermediary for the consumers it represents.
It will provide a voice for the community and consumers on health service planning and delivery. The Consumer Council seeks to enhance consumer engagement and experience through:
- Service integration across the sector
- The promotion of equity
- Ensuring services are organised and provided to meet the needs of all consumers.
