The advice and feedback received from the community helped to inform our Board to decide on the structure, number and location of Community Advisory Councils.
The Councils play a key role in our organisation and for the first time allow community members the opportunity to help shape regional health planning and local health outcomes in the Murray PHN region.
Community Advisory Councils participate in designing healthcare provision in their regional areas to develop local solutions to:
- align service provision to needs
- improve health outcomes
- improve access to services
- better connection of the healthcare system
The Community Advisory Councils are governed by a Terms of Reference that sets out its purpose and structures.
