About us

We support and inform consumers and the health sector to partner for health care improvements.

Since 1983, we have been an informed and credible consumer voice in health in Victoria and fostered meaningful partnerships between health consumers and the Victorian health sector. Through training and support, we encourage consumers to use their unique knowledge and experience to participate in their own health care as well as contributing to a better health system with improved outcomes and experiences for everyone.

We support and inform health services to involve and learn from their consumers. We contribute to policy and debate to encourage a more equitable and partnership-based health system.
