The Community Advisory Committee plays an important role in helping to ensure we partner with our patients, consumers and the community in our planning, service delivery and improvement.
They are a strong voice for promoting partnership with consumers in everything we do. They provide oversight and help to monitor the approach we take to consumer and community involvement across both the Royal Melbourne Hospital and NorthWestern Mental Health. They act as advocates to our Board on behalf of those who may have difficulty being heard.
The Community Advisory Committee is chaired by a member of the Melbourne Health board and has 12 positions for community members. Members are usually patients, consumers, carers and community representatives who may be future uses of the health service. Several staff members also attend.
