Our Citizens’ Partnership will be a group with up to seven members. They will work with HSIB to support the patient and public perspective in our healthcare safety investigations.
The Citizens’ Partnership will be pivotal in building and maintaining public understanding and confidence in our healthcare safety investigations. It will work to make sure the public perspective is integral to everything we do and adds value to investigations from inception to completion.
