Help improve health care by helping services understand the patient and carer experience.
We are looking for people in the Blacktown and Mount Druitt areas and surrounds who want to volunteer to bring the patient, carer and family voice to health care services across the Western Sydney Local Health District.
Our diversity in Western Sydney means that public health needs to understand what it is like to be a consumer of public healthcare in our district, making the contribution of community members who bring consumer perspectives to the work of our staff vitally important. This may include meetings, document reviews, sharing stories and other activities either online or in person.
All volunteering in person will comply with COVID safe guidelines.
If you, someone you care for or a family member have experienced a health service in these areas and would like to partner together with the health service to bring about improved health outcomes, please contact us.
You are joining a thriving community of Consumer Representatives who provide insights and networks for Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) to learn about our communities and how to serve them.
Access to training including orientation, communication, My Health Learning.
Volunteers will be paired with experience Consumer Representatives as their mentors.
