It’s your chance to have a say: The Western NSW Local Heath District (WN- SWLHD) is calling for people who have an interest in health to join its register of health consumer representatives. The register will provide the WNSWLHD with a pool of people interested to be on an organisational committee or to simply provide comment to matters such as service plans, policy documents, publications, quality and safety programs. For more information people can email WNSWLHD-Volunteers@health.nsw.gov.au for an information and registration pack or contact Illona Dunn on 6378 6274.
