The Safety and Quality in Healthcare Special Interest Group (SIG) was established to support CHF’s policy and advocacy work in improving health systems for all consumers – patients, carers and communities. 

  • Are you consumer representative or advocate in a health service?
  • Are you interested in improving the safety and quality of health delivery to consumers?
  • Do you have views about how health safety and quality risks can be reduced or practices improved?

Participating in the SIG offers consumers the opportunity to review and consult on government initiatives, identify and draw attention to areas for improvement, and support CHF’s policy development and advocacy work.

The group advises CHF.  Final policy positions are made by the CHF Board.

The time commitment is to attend a monthly online meeting and to read documents and provide comments between meetings. No sitting fees or reimbursement is offered to participants.

For more information please read our General Purpose and Operation Document or contact Tammy Wolffs, Senior Policy Officer
