We are a consumer led state-wide community organisation based in Tasmania. We influence the Tasmanian health system to better meet the needs of patients, carers and our communities.
Providing an independent, informed and representative consumer voice, we respectfully engage with health service providers to improve the health and wellbeing of all Tasmanians. Founded on partnerships, working alongside the Tasmanian community and health industry, Health Consumers Tasmania will build a more co-operative, fairer and consumer centred health service.
“Health Consumer Tasmania has been established to work with the Tasmanian community to ensure they have meaningful input into their health system. Our health consumer representatives work with health providers to jointly develop solutions to the many challenges our health system is facing.”
– Bruce Levett
We acknowledge and thank the support we have received from our funders, namely the Department of Health and Primary Health Tasmania, as well as support from key Government stakeholders, Minister for Health and staff of all levels from across the Department.
We help the community to use their voice.
“My belief is that HCT has rapidly grown into the established consumer voice where we are now. The membership is also of high quality in expertise, keeping these members connected is a good indicator of an outcome.”
