The Western Health Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is made up of 8-12 community members, a Board Chair and is supported by the Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery.
The CAC has two critical roles:
1. To provide direction and leadership in relation to the integration of consumer, carer and community views into all levels of health service operations, planning and policy development
2. To advocate to the board on behalf of the community, Consumers Carers and Community members and carers.
The CAC is a high-level committee, which is appointed in an advisory capacity to the public health service board as a legislated advisory committee of the board. It has no executive authority.
