Guelph General Hospital is looking for patients and caregivers from Guelph and Wellington County to participate in its new Patient and Family Advisory Council. Members of the Council will help improve the patient experience by advising its leadership team on matters that impact the patient and family experience, and patient-centred care.
“Patients and their families are valuable members of our healthcare team and are experts in patient and family experience within health care,” says Marianne Walker, President and CEO. “By listening to patients and families, we gain unique and valuable perspectives on our current and future practices.”
The Hospital is inviting patients and/or family/caregivers, over the age of 18, who have accessed the services at GGH either as an outpatient or as inpatient within the last three years, to apply for consideration to be a volunteer member of its Council.
It will meet regularly to provide input to hospital staff, management, physicians and the Board on a variety of hospital activities, projects and committees. The Council members will include patients, families, hospital staff and clinicians.
Applications are available here or can be picked up at its Information Desk in the main lobby.
