Patient, carer and staff engagement is important because it helps us to improve all aspects of health care leadership, including patient and staff experience– giving people the power to share their experiences of care, which in turn impacts on individuals and organisational leadership capabilities.

Although we’ve made a good start, we still have a long way to go to realise our vision of truly having patients, carers and communities involved in everything we do.
