Health Consumers’ Council has partnered with Australian Digital Health Agency to help West Australians get to know My Health Record better. We’ve been sharing content through our social media, website and newsletters, and now we’d like to hear more about your thoughts on My Health Record. We’ve put together a short survey to capture your views:

Advance care planning and My Health Record – find out more and share feedback

Advance care planning can help you to plan ahead, so your family, friends and doctors will know what you want if you can no longer speak for yourself. My Health Record is an online summary of your key health information.

You can store advance care planning documents on My Health Record so that your healthcare team all have access to the information about your plans.

Health Consumers’ Council, Carers WA, the Advance Care Planning Consortium (via Palliative Care WA) and WA Health Support Services (part of WA Health) are organising a workshop in February 2020. You can register your interest via the email address below.

Share your feedback

Please take 5 minutes to complete this short survey – we will be providing this information to the WA Health team to inform future work about Advance Care Planning and My Health Record

If you have any questions about this event, please contact us at or call 08 9221 3422

What should a safe space alternative to Emergency Departments look like?

If you experience a mental health issue, or support someone who does, would you like to help design a safe space alternative to Emergency Departments?

The State Government has committed to implementing a number of recommendations from the Sustainable Health Review, including the establishment of a Safe Haven Café, a place to go when medical attention is not required but people need a place to feel safe and have access to non-judgemental support.

The WA Mental Health Commission has funded the Consumers of Mental Health WA (CoMHWA) to gather a wide range of views to ensure the space meets the needs of consumers and family members/friends in a caring/support role. We welcome your input via the surveys

Individuals with a lived experience of mental health and or alcohol/other drug issues
Families, carers and support people
Service providers
