Applications of interest sought for new Wellington Free Ambulance consumer council

8 Feb 2019 | Partners in Care

Wellington Free Ambulance (WFA) provides ambulance services for all communities in the greater Wellington region and Wairarapa.

They are looking for ways to improve their services and health outcomes for their communities. With this in mind, WFA is creating a consumer council – a group of consumers and their carers who can provide insight into the patient experience and work with them to improve services and eliminate inequities. 

Applications of interest to join the consumer council close on 8 March 2019.

The consumer council needs to reflect the diverse communities Wellington Free Ambulance works with. If you are over 18, live in the greater Wellington region or the Wairarapa, have used one of Wellington Free Ambulance's services in the past two years, as a patient or carer, and are keen to improve the health outcomes for our communities please visit: for more information. 

Through partnership and collaboration, the thoughts, feelings and ideas of the consumer will be heard in an honest and open forum. This partnership will help create meaningful, sustainable changes to improve the service and experience of their patients.
