Improving Patient Experience

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Patient and Family Advisor at Guelph General Hospital. The goal is to improve our patient experience by advising our leadership team on matters that impact the patient and family experience, and patient-centred care.

Patients and family members are a critical part of our healthcare team and are experts in patient and family experience within healthcare. Advisors provide a patient or family member perspective to GGH decision-making processes and services at both the program and organizational level.

We invite patients and/or family/caregivers, over the age of 18, who have accessed the services here either as an outpatient or as inpatient within the last three years, to apply for consideration to be a volunteer advisor.

Advisors provide input to hospital staff, management, physicians and the Board on a variety of hospital activities, projects and committees.

If you are interested in volunteering your time on the Council, thank you! Applications are available here
