Have your say to help improve access to healthcare for young people

Finding it hard to see a doctor or get medical help when you need?

Want to hear some ideas, be part of the solution and get paid for it?

We are looking for positive, open-minded, critical thinkers aged 15-35, to join us in our goal to improve the access and experience of healthcare services for local young people.

We want to fund new ways of doing things that will make access to healthcare quicker and easier for current and future generations.

We are inviting young people from across the North Coast footprint to join our codesign workshop. You will be presented a selection of ideas aimed at improving young people’s access to healthcare services. Your feedback will be invaluable in shaping the solution.

Not only will your voice inspire change, but you will be paid $50 per hour for your time.

The codesign workshop will run for 2.5 hours and be held via video conference on Tuesday 7 December 2021.

All you need to do is bring your local knowledge, be open-minded and provide honest feedback. As the session will take place via video conference, you will need a strong internet connection on the day.

Visit our Primary Care Access page for more information.

Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday 23 November 2021.
