Our Community Advisory Committee

We are seeking consumer representatives that are able to reflect the community voice of our diverse health service demographic through strong links to community networks and / or contribute lived experience or awareness of cultural diversity perspectives.

The CAC is a committee that advises the organisation on consumer and carer engagement. Members help to ensure we partner with our patients, consumers, carers and the community in our planning, service delivery and improvement. They are a strong voice for promoting partnership with the people we serve.

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

Applications are now open for passionate consumer 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.
