Interest in this topic (e.g. consumer advocate, health professional, researcher, member of the public):
The NHC gives particular weight to feedback provided on behalf of organisations; with the exception of feedback received from individual patients and their families which will be given equal weight as to organisational feedback.
Please note that your feedback and all correspondence you have with the NHC may be subject of requests under the Official Information Act 1982 (the OIA). The NHC will generally omit your personal details from your feedback and correspondence before making it available as part of any request under the OIA, if you make it clear that you wish such information to be withheld.
If there is any part of your feedback or correspondence that you consider could properly be withheld under the OIA, please include comment to this effect along with the reasons why you want information withheld.
Similarly, if there are aspects of your feedback or correspondence that you wish withheld from publication on the NHC website, as part of the summarisation of consultation feedback received, please include comment to this effect.
