Partnering With You
Healthcare is a relationship between people delivering care and people receiving care. This creates a need to engage with each other to ensure the best care can be given. Ultimately all decisions made have an impact on people’s lives so it is practically important to involve people in decisions about healthcare.
To ensure that we provide the best care, THS listens to the voice of our consumers. We want to ensure that what you say in how we design and deliver care is valued and heard.
We will encourage and support participation in decision making, foster collaboration, communicate and share information, and treat our consumers with dignity and respect.
This is an integral part of our 'Together We Care' culture when delivering person centred care.
'Empowering People for Health’
'Empowering People for Health’ is the long-term vision of Tallangatta Health Service.
Our Strategic Direction identies the strategic priorities that will enable the service to achieve its vision by remaining relevant and sustainable, and meeting the
changing health needs of the community.
