We believe that people who use the health care system should have a say in how it works. We also believe that health care is better and our community is healthier when you are involved in planning, designing and evaluating health services.
Join the People Bank and together we can make health care better.

In December 2018, people from across Melbourne's north west came together to share different viewpoints and reached a shared position on what dying well looks like. Their recommendations will be used to help plan and design better care and services to improve end-of-life care and palliative support for people living in our region.
