Together we can make a difference!

We are a dedicated group of elected patient representatives who are here to help those who use the MUHC hospitals, clinics and services.

We can help you to:

  • understand your rights as a patient (also known as a “user”)
  • fill out forms
  • file complaints
  • get information you need, and many other matters.

What we do: 

  • Listen to patients and meet on a monthly basis to discuss the relevant issues;
  • Represent patients on many committees at the hospital and have representation on the MUHC Board of Directors;
  • Maintain a link with the administrative officers of the MUHC;
  • Help improve the quality of healthcare services;
  • Help improve the environmental conditions of the hospital; 
  • Monitor the quality of the living conditions of inpatients;
  • Deal with issues such as patient safety, infection control, patient communication, etc.;
  • Conduct patient satisfaction surveys.
