The Orange community is being urged to join the Orange Health Council.
Orange Health Council Chair, Robert Fabry said “People with an interest in local health services are being asked to nominate to join the Orange Health Council”.
“Health Council members play a key role in planning and delivering health services in Orange and the surrounding communities.
“The Health Council works with managers and clinical staff to identify the health needs of their community from a consumer perspective” Mr Fabry said.
The Orange Health Council is currently recruiting to a number of positions.
“Our Health Council has a strong community voice and we’re encouraging people of all ages and from all backgrounds to nominate so we can continue to represent everyone’s interests. We would like to particularly encourage young people and Aboriginal community members to apply.
"We provide planning advice to the health service based on our local knowledge. Members are committed to giving the community a voice on issues that affect the health and wellbeing of the local community.
“At a minimum, membership requires attendance at monthly meetings of the Health Council, but there are plenty of opportunities for wider participation in committees and workshops associated with areas of personal interest,” Mr Fabry said.
