Call for CQ Health Consumer Representatives

Closed 7 Jan 2019

Opened 10 Aug 2018

Overview

We are inviting our health consumers to participate on our strategic committees in CQ Health. 

You will not be required to have any specialist skills or health knowledge – let us focus on this. There are several formal health consumer representative positions available. This is a volunteer position with the ability to claim reasonable out-of-pocket expenses while in the position. Monthly meetings are held at Rockhampton Hospital with phone and video conference available. Any health consumer or carer within the Central Queensland health region can apply.

Do I have the skills?

  • Have you been a consumer in any service provided by CQ Health?
  • Would you be able to represent yourself as a consumer or carer?
  • Would you be able to work in a team and have the confidence to speak in a group to get your views across?
  • Would you be available to volunteer several hours of your time?
  • Would you be able to commit to meeting as a committee once a month?
  • Would you be happy to receive support throughout your involvement?

If yes, we need you!
