Consumer Advisory Committee and

Consumer Engagement Register

The Armadale Kalamunda Group (AKG) incorporates the Armadale Health Service, including Armadale Hospital and Armadale Mental Health Services, and the Kalamunda District Community Hospital.

The Armadale Kalamunda Group is committed to working with consumers and carers to ensure the hospital and health services we provide meet the needs of our community.

We are currently seeking a diverse group of motivated and enthusiastic consumers and/or carers with an interest in how hospital and health services are delivered to join our Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) or Consumer Engagement Register.

The CAC provides advice, direction and advocacy for the planning and delivery of health care provided by the hospitals and services within the Armadale Kalamunda Group.

People interested in being part of the CAC would need to be willing and available to attend monthly meetings and participate in other activities. Appointment to the CAC will be for an initial six months with the possibility of an 18 month extension.

The Consumer Engagement Register is a register of people wanting to be involved in other consumer discussions, working groups and activities. Consumers from this register would provide input to the CAC on specific activities, as required.

To register your interest, complete the Consumer Engagement Registration Form (Word 197KB).

You can also email AKG_ConsumerLiaison@health.wa.gov.au or call 9391 1153 for a registration pack.

AKG strongly encourages applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, people from culturally diverse backgrounds and people with disabilities.

Registrations will be open until 6 February, 2017.
