Engaging with our Community

West Gippsland Healthcare Group is committed to engaging consumers in the design, development and delivery of our services. We value our community’s voice.

We are guided by the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards. You can read more about these standards (especially Standard 2, which is specifically about partnering with consumers) by clicking here.

Would you like to join our Consumer Register?

You might like to join our Consumer Register. Consumer representatives can take on a number of roles within the organisation. These can include: Providing advice about services, reviewing brochures and other patient information, participating in working groups about a particular issue or project, or assisting with staff education and training.

You might be a present or past patient, a carer or community member. You just need an interest in participating in improvement opportunities across our organisation.

You could do a role that requires a regular commitment or something that is less frequent that you can work around your other commitments. Of course, you will be provided with the resources and support to help you fulfil your role.

Please note: being on the Consumer Register will not prevent you from volunteering in our other volunteer programs, and vice versa.

If you would like more information about having your voice heard, contact Rosemary Joiner, Consumer Engagement and Volunteers Coordinator on 03 5624 0597 or email rosemary.joiner@wghg.com.au
