The Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) Consumer Council meets on the first Tuesday morning of each month. Consumer Representatives meet and discuss issues of interest and importance from a Consumer point of view. There are two brief presentations at most meetings, by staff and visitors about relevant health services and opportunities within WSLHD and Western Sydney. The purpose of council business is to improve the quality of life of patients, families and over all patient care experience. The council experience provides consumer representatives with training and orientation to the role. Consumers also learn from each other. The network of consumer representatives is very supportive. More experienced reps mentor less experienced reps. WSLHD staff are not eligible to join the consumer council, however they are invited to come along and participate in the discussion. When you are properly recruited as a consumer representative you are invited to attend council meetings.
