Organisation Objective

To deliver high quality care that is safe, person and family centred, equitable and clinically effective which includes people partnering in their own healthcare. We aim to achieve this by gaining meaningful input from our community.

Our Community and Cultural Governance committee is a sub-committee reporting to the KDHS Board. Their focus is to ensure the health service undertakes a comprehensive and consistent approach to informing the community of the effectiveness and value of its work.
