Valuing what patients say about Outreach services 

CheckUP supports and encourages Outreach service providers to collect patient feedback. Information sourced from patients is incredibly valuable in supporting quality improvement of health services, enhancing patient experience & engagement, as well as identifying trends and patterns. 

All contracted Outreach service providers are supplied with various resources to assist with the collection of patient feedback, making it easy to source valuable input from patients.

One of the many focuses for Outreach services across Queensland is providing quality care that is closer to home, as this continues to still be a challenge for people living in rural and remote areas.

In addition to collecting information from the patient about their experience of the health service, we also ask them what distance they travel to attend their Outreach appointment.

Surveying 802 patients from 2020 to now, we noted that patients travelled these distances to attend appointments:

64.2% of patients indicated they travelled 10km or less

19.4% indicated they travelled between 11-50km

We encourage all service providers to make gathering patient feedback a priority, so we can continue to work together to effectively create healthier communities and reduce health inequities.

Here are some quotes from the patients expressing their gratitude for services delivered closer to home.

“Fantastic care and the service that is available for our remote location by Cecilia and the team is vital to the health and well-being of our community. Thank you.”



“Grateful that I didn’t have to travel 2 hours.”


“The service is good for the community and for those unable to travel long distances for consultations.”

“Maintain the excellent service in Ranveshoe. If it wasn’t available, diabetics in Ravenshoe would have to travel many kms to see a diabetes educator and if this was the case they probably wouldn’t go to see one. There are many elderly diabetics who need this service as well as indigenous and young people.”



“Its a wonderful service for a rural town.”
