  • Training and payment offered for activities; 

  • Help enhance patient safety and patient care;

Gul begum, Osteopathic patient representative said: “Getting involved with the GOSC as a patient has actually taught me a lot. I have shared my experiences and tried to help implement changes and improvements, I have felt valued throughout and that’s a great feeling. I have improved my communication skills and this has boosted my confidence and self-esteem. I feel that I have overcome my personal health issues from the satisfaction I felt by sharing my story.”
