Peter Mac Says No to Family Violence.
Family violence is an issue that affects many people across the lifespan but predominantly impacts women and children.
Peter Mac recognises that as a health service we have a key role in identifying and responding to family violence and we are committed to supporting our patients, their families and carers as well as our staff and volunteers.
Peter Mac is actively involved in the statewide Strengthening Hospital Responses to Family Violence project and will continue to work towards a future where everyone is free from family violence.
