Consumer, carer, family and community representative network

Health Consumers’ Council organise a number of networking events and workshops for people who are involved in the health system as a consumer, carer, family or community representative. We also host a Facebook group for representatives, as well as sending tailored emails and information.

Networking events

These sessions happen 3-4 times a year. Based on feedback from people who have participated in these sessions in the past, the aims are to:

  • Provide an opportunity for consumer, carer, family or community reps and members to connect with other reps across the health system in WA
  • Hear updates on key issues in the health sector and from Health Consumers’ Council
  • Build capacity by including a facilitated learning opportunity

Upcoming events
