Whyalla Hospital and Health Services Health Advisory Council

Health Advisory Councils across Country South Australia have been formed as a result of the recent Health Care Act. They will provide advice to their local Health Services and to the Minister for Health. 

A major role of the Whyalla Health Advisory Council (HAC) is to relay ideas and views from the Community to the local Health Service. These ideas are used in planning for new and improved services.

Membership

The Whyalla Hospital and Health Services Health Advisory Council can include:

  • Up to 8 community members
  • Nominee of local government
  • A local member of Parliament or his or her nominee
  • A medical practitioner member
  • A worker from Country Health SA

Meeting information
