Gawler District Health Advisory Council Inc.

Health Advisory Councils across Country South Australia provide advice to their local Health Services and to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing.

A major role is to relay ideas and views from the Community to the local Health Service. The ideas are used in planning for new and improved services. It is exciting times for the Gawler and Districts Health Advisory Council as there are opportunities to represent and provide a voice for our Community in a way which they have not done before.
