Be a Community Advisor

Bring your expertise and life experience to help us monitor the safety and quality of our health service.

There is evidence that health services are safer and offer quality care when they work in partnership with patients and the community.
We’ve got great medical, clinical and nursing teams at LRH to help you reach your healthcare goals and potential but you have a role in making sure we provide services that people really need and want to use.

You’re the extra set of eyes we need when evaluating our services, the innovators when it comes to planning and the voices representing diverse views and groups in the community.

Become a Community Advisor at LRH and share your unique experience as a patient, carer, consumer or community member.

There are a number of ways you can assist:

  • join a focus group or working group to design or improve a service
  • join a clinical committee to provide a community perspective on our communication and how we provide care
  • help us review incidents where patient safety may have been compromised
  • review patient information and brochures to ensure they are easily understood

These roles may be for a short-term project or review or monthly. If you are unable to commit to a regular volunteering position, our Community Advisor roles may suit you! It’s also a good option for people in paid employment who are looking for a way to help the community in your spare time.
