Consumer voice needed for Joondalup Health Campus expansion

Joondalup Health Campus (JHC) is looking to recruit at least five consumers to join their Consumer User Group to provide input on the plans for the hospital expansion.

User group members will be eligible to receive a consumer participation payment and parking will be provided.

There will be initially two user group meetings within the coming months where JHC require consumers to give their views alongside staff and external consultants to address additions and changes to the following areas:

  • Public Medical/Public Surgical Ward
  • Cardiac Care Unit
  • Emergency Department
  • Theatres
  • Operating Department
  • Mental Health
  • Discharge Lounge
  • Occupational Therapy Department
  • Waste Management
  • Social Work Department
  • Public Car Park

Skills/experience required

JHC are seeking input from people with diverse backgrounds or who have a broad range of lived experiences in their life – no background in design or planning is required.

User group meetings

User group meetings will be around 1.5hrs long per meeting. Later on in the year it is hoped the same user groups will then look at the decor designs for the agreed changes.

To apply

Complete the Expression of Interest (EOI) form on the JHC website (link below), making a note that the EOI is for the user group. The deadline for applications is 22 January 2020.
