Sharing experiences on care opinion

We are encouraging clients/consumers to share their story about how MTHCS has cared for them on Care Opinion -- a safe and independent way for community members to give us their feedback. Care Opinion is an independent site where anyone can share their stories about their experience of care. The site covers health and aged care, and community services in Australia, giving service users, their families and carers the opportunity to publish their personal experiences, good or bad, of the care system. By encouraging people to share their experience with MTHCS, we will be able to recognise staff who are doing a fabulous job, better understand what people think of the services we provide, and use this information to help improve our services.
