The Consumer Advisory Committee is the group established to provide direction and leadership to increase community and consumer involvement at Heywood Rural Health
The role as a consumer member of the Consumer Advisory Committee is to ensure that the perspective of our consumers is included in all of the committee’s discussions, decisions and recommendations.
The committee brings a community perspective to the development of priority areas and key issues to strengthen and make effective consumer and community participation at all levels of service planning and delivery.
There is evidence that active consumer participation in health service planning improves the quality of health care and the effectiveness of health systems as a whole. The role as a consumer is very important and will assist Heywood Rural Health to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
