A new, young and diverse Canowindra Health Advisory Council is committed to improving the health of the community and providing a voice for local people on health matters.
Kerby Lawrence has been appointed as the Chairperson for the Health Advisory Council and is already demonstrating strong leadership in her new role, generating a high level of engagement, interest and activity in council members.
As the new Health Advisory Council, they have spent initial meetings getting to understand the range of health services provided by Canowindra Health Service and engaging with guest speakers to increase their knowledge of health issues further. A key focus for the Health Advisory Council is identifying local needs and ensuring that allied health services are available to the community.
It is the Health Advisory Council’s role to talk to many different people in the community about the local health issues and to bring these local health needs and issues to the attention of the Health Service. It works to promote and improve the health of the local community in partnership with the Health Service and other community groups and organisations, participating in the planning of health services, and strengthen and build their networks within the community.
Canowindra Health Advisory Council members represent a good cross section of the community. They are: Health Service Manager: Susie Harrison; Community Health Manager: Liz Noble; Chair: Kerby Lawrence; Members: Sarah Bellach, June Brooks, Sandra Bryant, Nick Jacobs, Christine Sampson and Chris Weaver
