Consumer Advisory Council

Rockingham Peel Group (RkPG) is committed to working with consumers and carers to ensure the hospital and health services we provide are responsive to the needs of our community.

The Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) provides a structured partnership between consumer and carer representatives and RkPG to work towards the shared goal of improving the service and experience for consumers.
