Here’s how you can help shape healthcare on the Gold Coast

Gold Coast Health is looking for locals to join its Consumer Advisory Group and provide the agency with feedback on how it can better care for the Gold Coast community.

Margaret Shapiro from Labrador is a current member of the Consumer Advisory Group, and said: “If you’re interested in health and wellness, and are prepared to take part in discussions and share your experiences, I urge you to get involved and make a difference – you will be made very welcome.”

Gold Coast Health Board Chair Ian Langdon said Gold Coast Health’s journey towards world-class healthcare would require support and input from the community.


He said members of the group would be invited to join committees and working groups on various health topics that would benefit from consumer input.

“This is a great opportunity for local Gold Coasters to shape the future of the city’s health care,” said Mr Langdon.

“If you’re enthusiastic, can spare a few hours each month and have had the experience of being a patient in one of our hospitals or having used one of our range of community-based services, I’d encourage you to apply today,” Mr Langdon said.

Community Advisory Group (CAG) members are paid to attend quarterly meetings and to participate in other committees.

Expressions of interest close on Friday 10 March 2017.
