Sustainable Health Review – Consumer View

Extension to the Sustainable Health Review

WA’s Sustainable Health Review has been extended until November 2018. HCC is very pleased with this as it will allow for more time to engage with the community at large.

Engagement so far

More than 350 submissions were received in relation to the Sustainable Health Review and these will inform the Interim Report, likely to be released in January/ February 2018.

Forums

19 Forums were convened, 12 were community forums. All the feedback from these are on this webpage and again they will inform the Interim Report. HCC noted that there were a significant number of community services organisations at the events and the importance of not confusing engaging with the community sector, to engaging with the community itself.

Future engagement

In response to this, HCC has been given funding to increase the reach of consumer, carer and community engagement once the Interim Report is released. Work is in the planning stages right now, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to find out more.
