Community Advisory Committee
Latrobe Regional Hospital has a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) which meets every second month.
The group provides a community perspective on care and services provided by LRH. It also reviews and endorses patient information brochures and participates in audits of our food service.
The CAC receives an extensive briefing about a particular service at LRH each meeting to increase its awareness and understanding. It’s an opportunity for members to ask questions and share the views of the wider community
During the year, our CAC takes part in fortnightly quality and safety walk-rounds to learn about some of the activities staff had undertaken to improve care for patients.
Our community members during 2016-17 were:
Vicki Hamilton OAM (Newborough)
John Smethurst (Hazelwood North)
Ray Watson (Newborough)
Rita Fleming (Traralgon)
Rika Delaney (Traralgon)
Chelsea Caple (Leongatha)
Brodie Logue (Hazelwood North)
