Murray Health Voices
We want to hear from you about your health. Your experience matters to us.
Complete the registration form below to become a Health Voice in your community. This page also includes information on what we have heard in past surveys and resources to help spread the word about this important initiative.
Murray PHN’s role is to hear, understand and address the health needs of our communities. To do this effectively, we want to hear from people who use local health services in our region, as well as those who work in them. This information forms part of our annual Needs Assessment that supports the planning of future health services.
Make sure that your community is being heard - below is a current map of our Health Voices (updated 18 April 2018).
Why we want to hear from you
We are working towards health care that is designed around the needs of people and want to understand things like: what’s working well and what isn’t, things that make accessing services difficult and ideas for future improvements.
We want people to receive the right care, in the right place and at the right time. We will invest in primary care based on data, best practice and local knowledge to influence changes in the health system.
Register below to be part of Murray Health Voices. You will be asked a small number of questions via an email (potentially a text message in future) every month. We will never identify you, unless we ask your permission first. We will let you know what we have heard from you and others, and how we are using this knowledge to inform our work.
