Our purpose is to provide an independent voice that promotes, protects and partners with Gold Coast Health to provide a safe, excellent quality and timely healthcare.
We believe that the best possible health care is provided by way of a partnership between practitioners, patients and carers. As an advocate of patient centred care, CAG strives to promote health care that is respectful of and responsive to the preferences needs and values of patients and consumers.
In order to do this we are focusing on three strategic priorities.
- Health Literacy – develop and educate the community (consumers and health practitioners) in health literacy
- Diversity and Inclusion – advocating values and practices that are inclusive of cultural background, age, gender, religious beliefs, language, disability and education.
- Improving the quality and perception of food - provided at the hospital to encourage nourishment and good health.
- Improving service standards in the Residential Aged Care - better staff/patient ratios to provide adequate care.
