Could you represent the views of disabled or multicultural patients?

Apr 17, 2012

The Joondalup Health Campus Community Board of Advice is seeking additional members to represent the views of disabled and multicultural patients.

The Board comprises 10 members of the local community and representatives from hospital management who meet bimonthly to discuss issues concerning public patients.

Board Chairman Albert Jacob MLA says the group provides an important opportunity for the community and hospital management to communicate and share ideas.   

“Our meetings are about ensuring the hospital is responsive to the needs of our fast-growing community. Hospital management updates us on what is going on at the hospital while we provide feedback and suggestions based on our personal experiences or what we have heard from others.

“The Board comprises members from State Parliament, local government, Carers’ WA, the Health Consumers Council and the community. We are now seeking additional members to represent the views of disabled and multicultural patients. As the hospital grows, it is important we hear their views.”

Successful candidates will be required to attend bi-monthly meetings on a volunteer basis and feel confident in their ability to represent the views of disabled and multicultural patients.

To apply, please describe in 250 words why you are best placed to represent the views of disabled or multicultural patients. Send this with your CV by Friday 4 May 2012 to:
