Consumer and Community Advisory Committee

What is the Consumer and Community Advisory Committee?

The Consumer and Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) comprises of individual community members who advise the Board of Directors, from a consumer and community perspective.

Members advocate for the best interests of patients, consumers and their families and provide advice and guidance to South West Healthcare in carrying out its community engagement responsibilities. They are a strong voice for promoting partnership with the community we serve.

Members share information, contribute and provide a consumer perspective in service design, key South West Healthcare documents, oversee the development of key strategies and initiatives and quality and safety improvement activities at South West Healthcare.

The Committee is chaired by a member of the South West Healthcare Board of Directors and has 12 positions for community members. Members are usually patients, consumers, carers and community representatives who are current or future users of the health service.

All applications to the CCAC occur when vacancies exist through a formal interview process. Existing South West Healthcare consumer representatives are welcome to apply.


Applications for the South West Healthcare Consumer and Community Advisory Committee open as vacancies become available.
