Community Partnership

The Outer East Primary Care Partnership seeks to improve consumer, carer and community outcomes by working in partnership with our community in a more integrated, cooperative and coordinated way.

Evidence tells us that if people have a choice in their health care options, including the type of care they receive and when, where and how it is delivered, their health outcomes are improved. We take the view that people are the experts in their own care and that they should be firmly at the centre of designing and reviewing care.

We do this through direct community partnership in our Consumer Reference Group (CRG). We also work to embed better Health Literacy practices into organisations, and we bring these two areas together in our Co-design research.
