TasCOSS encourages all members and stakeholders to participate in a consultation on delivering healthcare in communities.
On Friday 6 November 2020, the Minister for Health announced Our Healthcare Future, the second stage of the State Government’s long-term reform agenda to consult, design and build a highly integrated and sustainable health service. Increasing and better targeting our investment to the right care, place and time to maximise benefits to patients is a key feature of Our Healthcare Future Immediate Actions and Consultation Paper.
You can have your say by making a written submission or speaking to a member of the Department of Health on (03) 6166 1091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Our Healthcare Future and details on how you can contribute, please visit health.tas.gov.au/ourhealthcarefuture.
The consultation period for written submissions and verbal feedback to Our Healthcare Future has been extended from Friday 15 January 2021 until Friday 12 February 2021.
TasCOSS welcomes this decision which will enable the community and key stakeholders extra time to provide vital constructive engagement in the feedback process.
