We are Victoria’s healthcare quality and safety specialist
We work with clinicians and consumers to help health services deliver better, safer healthcare.
Why we are here
Back in 2016 it was recognised that Victoria needed a new approach to improve the quality and safety of healthcare.
That’s why we were established in 2017. And why we take a determinedly fresh and independent-minded approach to helping health services improve.
Outstanding healthcare for all Victorians. Always.
Find out how we will achieve this in our Strategic Plan 2020-2023.
