Help to shape healthcare at The Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) by making a difference to the care provided to patients, consumers and carers.

Our Community Advisory Committee

The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a committee that advises the organisation, to ensure that consumer and carer and community views are included into all levels of health service design and delivery.

Members help to improve the way we partner with our patients, consumers, carers and the community in our planning, service delivery and improvement. The Community Advisory Committee is a strong and passionate voice for promoting partnership with the people we are here to serve.

The CAC is chaired by a member of the Royal Melbourne Hospital board and has 12 positions for community members. Members are patients, consumers, carers and community representatives who may be current or future users of the health service.

Applications are now open for committed patient, consumer, carer or community advocates to join our established CAC, to partner with us to help shape health improvements, planning and care services in the diverse north-western metro Melbourne community.

We are seeking people with a range of lived experiences and backgrounds to join our CAC.
