Hospital and Health Services


In October 2016, a Protocol between the Commission and Queensland Hospital and Health Services supporting collaboration was signed.

The protocol was signed by the Queensland Mental Health Commissioner, the Chair of the Board Chairs Forum and the HHS Chief Executive with the Mental Health portfolio.

This protocol recognises that the Queensland Mental Health Commission and Queensland’s 16 Hospital and Health Services seek a collaborative relationship that reflects their complementary roles and mutual interests in the areas of mental health, substance misuse and suicide prevention in Queensland.

It also provides a framework for all parties to work together – collectively and on discrete pieces of work – to improve outcomes while pursuing their own functions and priorities.
