Darling Downs Health has invited South Burnett residents to fill in a short online survey about the adequacy of health care … but you had better be quick, it closes on July 27

July 18, 2022

South Burnett residents have been invited to take part in the next stage of Darling Downs Health’s project to help shape the future of health care in the region.

Last month, the health service – which is responsible for all South Burnett public hospitals – launched its Local Area Health Needs Assessment.

This aims to gain a better understanding of the health care needs of communities and prioritise and address any urgent gaps.

The project has now moved into its next phase … a community-wide survey to collect health care experiences.

“We had a wonderful response to our first stage in which we asked people to share their stories,” spokesperson Wendy Pannach said.

“These stories have informed our survey which is now open to all community members.”

Ms Pannach said the survey was aimed at building a complete picture of the health service region.

“We are asking people to spend just five minutes completing this survey to have their say on the future of health care in their region,” Ms Pannach said.

“We want to hear from patients, clients and consumers of all health care services.

“We also want to hear from groups and organisations that are impacted by the work we do at Darling Downs Health.

“That might include not-for-profit groups, other health care providers like GPs or aged care providers and local councils.”

The survey is open until July 27.
