Community and Consumer Reference Pool
Are you a user of health services? Do you have a health condition? Are you a carer? Would you like to help us improve local health services?
We invite you to apply to join our new Community and Consumer Reference Pool. You’ll give feedback on our plans and activities across areas such as mental health, chronic conditions and aged care.
What would I have to do?
We’d ask you to join in with group discussions. There are no standard meetings or commitments: you decide how often you want to take part. You’ll tell us what areas you are interested in, and we’ll let you know when we are discussing that topic. If you are busy that time, there will be others in the Pool for us to ask.
Some sessions will be during the day, some will be early e.g. breakfast meeting, or early evening. Locations will be across southeast Melbourne, often at our offices at Heatherton, Dandenong or Mornington.
You can also help us from home by giving feedback on written consumer information by email.
People whose first language is not English, or who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, are encouraged to apply.
How do I apply?
