Consumer Advisory Committee

Armadale Kalamunda Group (AKG) is committed to working with consumers and carers to ensure the hospital and health services we provide are responsive to the needs of our community.

Role of Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC)

The CAC provides consumer advice, direction and advocacy for the planning and delivery of health care provided by AKG. CAC members, are required to attend monthly meetings and take part in other hospital activities and initiatives. The Committee’s role is to:

  • advise on strategies to enhance and promote consumer, carer and community participation, including the development and implementation of the strategic Community, Carer and Consumer Participation Plan
  • identify and prioritise issues requiring consumer and community participation
  • participate in relevant hospital committees/meetings/forums to provide a consumer perspective
  • review information provided to patients and consumers of our services
  • advocate on behalf of the community to the South Metropolitan Health Service through the South Metropolitan Health Service CAC
  • participate in the broad strategic planning and service development process
  • assist in developing and monitoring key performance indicators for service quality and accessibility.

Consumer Engagement Register

The Consumer Engagement Register is a register of consumers who wish to be involved in consumer discussions, hospital committees and working groups and other activities. Consumers will have the opportunity to provide input to the CAC on specific activities. Commitment in these activities is at the discretion of the individual consumer.
