Contact the LHD in your area about opportunities to make a difference
Local Health Districts or LHDs are hospital networks that are funded by state governments. There are 15 Local Health Districts in NSW and these operate public hospitals, clinics and community health services.
Every LHD is required to involve health consumers in decision making in various ways. Each has a dedicated Community Engagement Manager (or equivalent) responsible for engaging consumers and working with them to help shape processes and policies.
If you wish to register your interest in being involved as a consumer representative within your closest LHD or to find out more about the way they engage with consumers, we have prepared a list of Local Health Districts to help you get directly in touch with the Consumer Engagement contact.
Also included in this list are contacts for other specific networks such as Sydney Children's Hospitals Network.
