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

Djilba/spring 2020

The focus for this session will be on consumer feedback and complaints. How to provide feedback and make complaints, and how this feedback is used by health services to improve services and outcomes. We will be joined by Michael Greco from Care Opinion, and Carly Parry from Health Consumers’ Council’s Advocacy team.

There will also be a chance for participants to discuss and brainstorm how we can encourage more feedback from consumers and community members.
