Thanks to all the magical members of ConViCTionN who got together face-to-face and online on Wednesday, 21 February in Sydney.
Our office will be closed from Friday, 22 December 2023 and will reopen on Monday, 8 January 2024.
On Friday 20 October, Board members, staff, voting members and individual members of Health Consumers NSW met in person and online to celebrate our achievements in the financial year 2022/2023.
Health Consumers NSW is proud to present our Strategic Plan for 2023 to 2026, which sets out how we will move forward, building on our past successes. The plan came into effect on 1 July 2023 and lays out our strategic direction for the next three years.
The University of Sydney is establishing a consumer group for the Faculty of Medicine and Health (FMH). This is an exciting opportunity to influence and have input into the education and training of future healthcare professionals including medical practitioners, dental practitioners, nurses, allied health practitioners and pharmacists.
HCNSW has an active and very skilled board. A strong board is one that has a balance of experienced and new members and we would encourage people interested in joining the Board to join us for an information session to find out more about the role and responsibilities of the HCNSW Board.
Paid participation recognises the value of the expert contributions made by people who have a lived or living experience of being a health consumer.
This Statement of Aims has been developed by the Consumer Leaders in Health Collective.
In late 2022, we partnered with the Critical Intelligence Unit of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) to gather experiences from people with long-COVID in NSW.
As the peak body and voice for all health consumer representatives in our Statewide network, we strongly recommend that consumers invited to engage or be involved with health services, research institutions, or other health entities should be remunerated for their contribution and reimbursed for expenses.
