Mildura Weekly : Friday April 15 Vol 10 No 23
NEWS 17 FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 2016 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU MILDURA residents with an interest in health, well-being and health care are being invited to support Murray Primary Health Network es- tablish Community Advisory Councils across their region. Community members are encouraged to attend one of 13 planned consultation fo- rums occurring throughout April and May, and apply for membership to the Commu- nity Advisory Councils. Murray PHN is asking the community to share their knowledge of existing local networks and strengths in the current advisory system arrangements to help inform the structure, membership and catchment areas of the Murray PHN Community Advisory Councils, due for establishment from July this year. Murray PHN commenced operation in July 2015, with a focus on improving health outcomes of communities in their region, which spans from Mildura to Woodend and across to Albury and Wodonga. Murray PHN CEO, Matt Jones, PICTURED, said that improved health outcomes for the region were a high pri- ority for the organisation. “We are keen to hear local feedback and input to ensure that decisions, investments and innovations are patient centred, locally relevant, cost- effective and are aligned to lo- cal health priorities,” he said. “To do this we are estab- lishing Community Advisory Councils. “A combination of per- spectives are important to assist in planning, design, system change and advisory decisions in order to meet our objectives.” Residents are being asked to share their thoughts on the establishment of councils, or apply for a position on one of the councils across the region. Input from these consul- tation sessions will determine the number and geographi- cal coverage of each advisory council. The role of the Commu- nity Advisory Councils will be to provide the Murray PHN board with locally relevant perspectives and recommen- dations on local health needs and innovations to address health issues. The council will work col- laboratively with the Murray PHN board, the Population Health Planning Advisory Council and the Clinical Ad- visory Council. The shape, structure and contribution for the selection of the Community Advisory Councils will be determined by information generated through the consultation fo- rums discussions. “Community Advisory Councils will be a critical platform and avenue for the community to have a voice in the design of improved and responsive models of care,” Mr Jones said. More information, or to register for an upcoming forum or complete a survey, is available online at www. murrayphn.org.au/about/ community-advisory-coun- cil.
