Community Advisory Council

King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) is committed to partnering with consumers to ensure a patient-centred approach to all service planning, delivery and evaluation.

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) provides support and advice to WNHS to improve the hospital experience for patients, their families and other hospital consumers. The council is made up of a diverse range of consumers and community members that meet monthly.

Some of the areas of involvement include:

  • Planning and development of health services at the hospital.
  • Input to health service delivery at our hospital.
  • Advocating for consumers, carers and the community.
  • Promoting consumer and community participation.
  • Facilitating communication and cooperation between our hospital, local service providers and communities.
  • Monitoring health-related activities and reporting on the needs of consumers.
