Consumers at the centre of health
in South Australia

In the South Australian health system, it is now more widely accepted that consumers should have a central role as the users and beneficiaries of health care and, ultimately are the ones who pay for it. While once the consumer voice was heard only at the margins of the health system, now HCA helps facilitate the appointment of consumer representatives on more than 20 health-related committees. 

 

Advocacy can bring about change or it may maintain the status quo, but it is always directed towards a specific goal or end.

The Child and Family Health Service (CaFHS) Consumer Advisory Committee aims to provide direct feedback to the CaFHS division from the patients, clients and consumers who use their health services. The committee is responsible for monitoring performance, providing advice on new models of care, service planning and health information and leading quality improvement activities. They want to ensure that they partner with consumers, carers and families during mental health episodes and when planning or designing services. They are seeking for consumers and caregivers over the age of 16 years to nominate for one of 4 advisory board positions starting in August 2019.
