Acknowledgement to Country
At St Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our hospital operates, and their Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of these regions.
We recognise that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the right to feel confident and safe in accessing the Australian healthcare system.
Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important aspect of ending exclusion. Awareness of the importance of different cultures and acceptance of this diversity as a part of modern Australia is central to the St Andrew’s culture. This increased acceptance across all aspects of our society is a critical aspect in helping to create a more united Australia.
