Get involved


Consumer and community engagement

Our aim is to work more closely with partners, our consumers and community, and staff to jointly develop services and programs that make the West Moreton Community healthier.

Who can be involved

Local people who use our health service or supports someone to use our health services can be involved. Consumers can include patients (past and present), carers, family members and community members.

Why be involved

Everyone has a valuable perspective and can give a unique insight into health care services. If you are sitting in a waiting room you might see something that could be improved that people walking past don't see. Having people from different cultures, backgrounds, age groups and users of different services can all give different perspectives that can help shape this health service.

How to get involved

West Moreton Health is committed to listening to and involving our patients, consumers and their families to improve health services including safety and quality of care and ensure that we are responsive to community needs.

The West Moreton Health Consumer Network is one way you can get involved in your health service. By becoming a member, you will receive information different engagement opportunities.

Ways to get involved

By joining the West Moreton Health Consumer Network we will send you information on upcoming activities that you can get involved in. You can participate in as many or as few activities as you like including:

  • receiving information
  • answering a survey
  • reviewing a patient brochure or web page
  • attending a meeting
  • joining a working group or committee
  • attending a forum
  • getting involved in our master planning to meet the needs of our growing region.

How much time will engagement activities take?

Some activities like answering a survey will only take a short amount of time. Other activities, like being part of a focus group, will take two-to-four hours.

Being part of a committee would be a 12-24 month commitment, with consumers attending regular meetings.
