Who We Are

Health Consumers’ Council (WA) Inc, (HCC) is an independent, not for profit organisation passionate about ensuring the consumer is at the heart of our state’s health care system. We provide an Individual Advocacy Service during office hours Monday to Friday to help you navigate our health system. We also provide systemic advocacy for the WA community by participating on a large range of committees and working groups and advocating to senior decision makers in health to ensure the consumer voice is heard at the highest level.

Our Engagement Program provides training and other support to ensure people can have a say in health policy, planning and review. Our Culture and Diversity Co-ordinator ensures that people from a non-English speaking background are considered in health service planning. We also have an Aboriginal Engagement Co-ordinator who focuses on ensuring Aboriginal communities are able to have their say and participate in health service reform.

We are keenly aware of the difficulties facing people outside Perth and have a toll-free number for country callers: 1800-620-780.
