What’s being decided?

We are reviewing the health outcomes for people with disabilities and their experience when interacting with the health sector.

We want to understand:

  • The issues that people with disabilities experience,
  • How they might impact on their overall health and wellbeing and,
  • What would matter most if the health system were to change.

You can learn more about the review in the Background section of this page.

  • Someone with lived experience of disability and engaging with the health system,
  • A family member of someone with a disability,
  • A carer of someone with a disability,

We would like to hear about your stories and lived experience. They will help us improve our health and disability system.

We have prepared some prompting questions that you may want to consider before sharing your story.

How can your input influence the decision?
