In this first edition of the LCLHN Community Update newsletter we shine a light on Leesher Schultz, one of our consumer representatives, provide an overview of our local HAC’s and look back at this year’s COVID-19 journey.
In this newsletter, you’ll find stories including local sisters Cheyenne and Gabrielle Smith who have qualified through the Nursing Cadetship, winners and finalists in our LCLHN Staff Awards, a focus on the Millicent and District Hospital and Health Service and an interview with Barrie Moyle, the Presiding Member for the Naracoorte and Area Health Advisory Council.
In this edition, we’re pleased to share the progress we have made so far to implement the Mount Gambier and Districts Health Service: Service Plan. Other articles include a profile on our new Consumer Advisor, Victoria Wilson, useful advice from SA Pathology on what happens during a blood test and updates from the Mount Gambier and Districts Health Advisory Council and Kingston/Robe Health Advisory Council.
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!

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).
In regional areas of South Australia Healtyh Advisory Councils (HACs) ensure that the strong link between communities and their health services are maintained.
