The MidCentral DHB Consumer Council is looking to recruit new membership as it continues to advocate for the MidCentral community.
The Consumer Council was established last year with the purpose of acting as a vehicle for
consumers to participate in improving health outcomes at all levels of MidCentral DHB.
The Council is chaired by John Hannifin who is known for his work in health promotion. Other members have links to community health, counselling, farming, and local migrant communities.
John Hannifin, Independent Chair, Consumer Council, has emphasised the need for membership to link across all community groups, beliefs, ethnicities, locations and health sector experience and to represent the diversity that is a reality in our communities.
He says it’s important that the Consumer Council remains independent from MidCentral DHB and the Central PHO, as well as their contracted providers. Employees of MDHB, PHO and provider organisations are not eligible for membership.
Applications will run until 20 July. Shortlisting will occur from 23-2 8 July, with candidate interviews to follow.
