Community members provide valuable input

Community members attended a Strategic Planning Forum at East Grampians Health Service to provide feedback to assist the health service plan for the future.

Participants ranged from secondary school students through to older members of the community and all provided valuable input.

The session was lead by Alison Hallahan, who also facilitated a number of other strategic planning sessions for board, executive and staff as part of the health service working towards producing its Strategic Plan 2019-2022.

“East Grampians Health Service recognises that community and consumer participation contributes to the improvement of our health Service,” EGHS chief executive Nick Bush said.

“Consumers provide information, opinion and advice to the health service about how we can make our services safer and better on behalf of the broader community.

“It was pleasing to see such a good mix of community members attend, and all were happy to contribute feedback about their experiences at the health service, both positive as well as constructive comments.”
