Our Consumer Council
The nine-member Consumer Council was established in April 2017.
The council provides a strong consumer voice as an advisory group to Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand Nelson Marlborough. They meet monthly and have a broad scope as consumers are involved in all aspects of health. The council does not discuss or review issues that are (or should be) processed as formal complaints or provide a clinical evaluation of health services or individual patient care. They are not involved in decisions related to Te Whatu Ora - Nelson Marlborough's contracting processes.
Council membership is for a two-year term and members may be reappointed for a second two-year term.

Terms of Reference
The Health Quality and Safety Commission New Zealand has released the final version of the code of expectations for health entities’ engagement with consumers and whānau.
The health sector principles incorporate Te Tiriti o Waitangi (the Treaty of Waitangi) principles identified by the Waitangi Tribunal in its Hauora Inquiry. These include the principles of tino rangatiratanga (self-determination), ōritetanga (equity), whakamaru (active protection), kōwhiringa (options) and pātuitanga (partnership).
This code does not replace the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers’ Rights (Code of Rights). The Code of Rights specifies important rights that providers must uphold when delivering services directly to consumers, and the code of expectations sets requirements for how health entities must work with consumers, whānau and communities in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of health services.
