Community Advisory Council


Consumer Advisory Council

King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) is committed to partnering with consumers to ensure a patient-centred approach to all service planning, delivery and evaluation.

The Community Advisory Council (CAC) provides support and advice to KEMH and the wider WNHS to improve the hospital experience for patients, their relatives and other hospital consumers, and includes a mix of consumer and community members.

  • advocating for consumers, carers and the community 
  • promoting consumer and community participation
  • facilitating communication and cooperation between our hospital, local service providers and communities
  • monitoring health-related activities and reporting on the needs of consumers.
The CAC values feedback from the community and can be contacted via email kemhcsu@health.wa.gov.au or phone (08) 6458 1444.
