Health Advisory Council

The Health Care Act 2008 provides for the establishment of local Health Advisory Councils (HACs).

HACs are incorporated or unincorporated advisory bodies, advising the Minister on health issues related to specific groups or regions.

In regional areas, HACs will ensure that the strong link between communities and their health services are maintained.
