Over the past few months, the Rockingham Peel Group (RkPG) Community Advisory Council (CAC) has been searching high and low for engaged and diverse members of the community to join the group.

The aim of the recruitment drive was to attract more members who reflect the diversity of our patient population.

Manager Education, Safety, Quality and Risk Chris Cullen said a diverse CAC was important in representing the many perspectives of our consumers.

“We are constantly working to improve the services we deliver to patients and ultimately their health outcomes, so it’s vital we include them in the improvement process,” Chris said.

“We look forward to welcoming some new, passionate people to the CAC.”

Chair Deb Letica said being involved in the CAC had been one of the best things she had ever done.

“The CAC is an important voice at RkPG because consumers and carers need to be part of designing health services that meet community needs,” Deb said.

As part of the recruitment drive campaign, which included web, social media and print, Deb was featured in the Sound Telegraph newspaper – read the article online (external site).

The interview process will take place over the coming months, with new members to start in 2018.
