Later this year, Mater Health will be assessed under the latest National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards. These National Standards are designed to maintain and improve the quality of care that healthcare organisations like Mater provide. This year’s assessment process will be different for Mater in two important ways.
Firstly, this will be the first time that Mater Health is assessed as a unified group across Queensland.
