Our Response to the Royal Commission

Our response

In January 2022 Eastern Health formed a Royal Commission Project Team to guide and support the development and implementation of  a transformation plan

Consultation sessions led by the project team have taken place with a wide range of clinicians and lived experience workers from across our Mental Health Program. A great deal of valuable information has been gathered through these discussion about how Eastern Health can best transform and address the Royal Commission’s recommendations and the eight initial priorities.

The Transformation Plan was completed and submitted to the Department of Health in June 2022. 


We aim to provide safe spaces for all our consumers and are committed to creating an inclusive and respectful environment for all individuals. This includes the needs of our first nations people, trans, gender diverse and non-binary consumers. We aim to work with our consumers to identify what is needed in order for them to feel safe.

We welcome any questions about Eastern Health’s Royal Commission response which  you can send to the Project Team at: MHRoyalCommissionProject@easternhealth.org.au
