Community Advisory Committee

Our Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is a sub- committee of Peninsula Health’s Board.

Members of the Community Advisory Committee include Consumer Representatives, members of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer and other senior Peninsula Health staff. The purpose of the Community Advisory Committee is to bring the voice of consumers, carers and the community in to the health service and to ensure that the consumer and community perspective is represented in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of our services. Consumer Representatives bring their own diverse experience and knowledge, and share a common interest in the provision of person centred care. They represent our broader community, and advise the Health Service on matters of consumer, carer and community interest or concern. Consumer Representatives also help to inform the community about what is happening at Peninsula Health. Through partnering with consumers and carers Peninsula Health can better understand the healthcare needs of our community.

The Community Advisory Committee meets quarterly at various Peninsula Health sites and provides opportunity for information sharing, robust discussion and learning. The Community Advisory Committee is linked to a number of Peninsula Health Community Advisory Groups that represent the diverse needs of our community.
