We’re Looking for New People to Join Our Community Advisory Committee

 

It’s our ambition to be one of the best regional health services in Australia, a magnet for top healthcare professionals, and a point of pride for all East Gippslanders.

For more information about the Community Advisory Committee, contact Aasta Holmes, Executive Assistant to the CEO, at aasta.holmes@brhs.com.au or 5150 3414.

But to get there, we need you. We need active and engaged voices from the community.

We also need to do a better job of bringing to the table people who often don’t have a chance to contribute their experience and perspectives, such as people living with a disability, residents of aged care facilities, Indigenous Australians, young people, and trans and gender diverse people.

To be a better health service, we need the feedback and ideas of local people that use the health service.

That’s why we are currently seeking expressions of interest from people in East Gippsland that want to contribute their thoughts and energy to helping BRHS fully understand and appreciate the perspectives of our consumers, and make positive changes that respond to their needs.

We’re currently seeking volunteer community representatives to join the BRHS Community Advisory Committee, which is a legislated advisory committee reporting to the BRHS Board of Directors.

As a member of the Community Advisory Committee, you’ll provide direction and leadership toward the integration of consumer, carer and community views into all levels of health service operations, and advocate to the board on behalf of the community, consumers and carers.

If you are interested in joining our Community Advisory Committee, (or perhaps you know someone who might be) we’d love to hear from you.

Contact Aasta Holmes, Executive Assistant to the CEO, at aasta.holmes@brhs.com.au or 5150 3414.

Input from the community drives us to make real changes.

Listening to feedback from consumers and visitors to the hospital has been the inspiration for a number of innovations at BRHS in recent times.

And every change we make is born from the goal of improving the experience of people who use our health service.

However, we know we need to continue to actively seek that input, and bring on board those local people that have something to contribute, and that are passionate about improving healthcare for this community.

If that sounds like you, or someone you know, get in touch.

It’s an opportunity to make real change, and improve the lives of your fellow East Gippslanders.
