Have your say: Help improve hospital care for Aboriginal people

Aboriginal adults admitted to hospital in 2022 will have the opportunity to provide feedback on their hospital experience.

If you are admitted to hospital in 2022, you may receive a copy of the survey in the mail around two months after the end of your hospital stay.

This is your chance to tell us how we can make hospital care better for you. We want to hear about your experiences. Are there areas that you think need improving? Did something impress you?

Your responses will be combined with all others and the results will be sent to the Local Health Districts that run our hospitals, including the local Aboriginal Health Unit, so that improvements can be made, and they can learn from the things that worked well.

All information you provide will be completely confidential and your personal information will not go back to your hospital, Aboriginal Medical Service or your GP.

This is part of a state-wide program to improve the quality of care and hospital safety for Aboriginal patients.

If you are sent a survey by the Bureau of Health Information, please fill it in.

For more information on the survey:

  • Visit the Bureau of Health Information website
  • Ask an Aboriginal Liaison Officer
