The Limestone Coast Local Health Network (LCLHN) regularly provides opportunities for the community to provide feedback on policies and plans that affect the delivery of public health services in the region.

Seeking: Consumer, Carer and Community representatives

It’s important that we have consumers, carers, and members that represent our diverse community involved when building our health services to serve and benefit all.

We are seeking consumer, carer, and community representatives to join a range of Governance Committees and be part of designing how we deliver our services, evaluation, and key performance monitoring and improvements.

There are a range of opportunities to be involved in Aged Care, Disability, Community or Hospital Service Committees – you tell us what your area of interest is, and we will contact you!

Consumer, Carer and Community Engagement Strategy 2021-2024

Under the Health Care Act, the LCLHN Governing Board has developed the Consumer, Carer and Community Engagement Strategy 2021-2024 (PDF 12MB).

The LCLHN aims to be an effective and forward-thinking health network that anticipates challenges, embraces change and most importantly, meets the needs of our consumers, carers and community.

The Consumer, Carer and Community Engagement Strategy 2021-2024 (PDF 12MB) demonstrates our commitment to partnering with consumers, carers and the community in the planning, design and delivery of our services.

As part of this, we recognise the diversity within our region, whether within our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities or in analysing the differing chronic healthcare conditions experienced by many within our community.

This strategy operates alongside the Clinician and Staff Engagement Strategy 2021-2024 (PDF 8.1MB) and forms a critical part of the LCLHN’s strategic direction over the coming years in line with the LCLHN Strategic Plan 2021 – 2025 (PDF 3MB).
