Help improve health services in our region

Would you like to use your experience as a health consumer or patient to improve health services in the Nelson Marlborough region? Nelson Marlborough Health is looking for applications invited for new Consumer Council.


Would you like to use your experience as a health consumer or patient to improve health services in the Nelson Marlborough region?

Our new Consumer Council will provide a strong voice for the community and consumers on health service planning and provision. We need members with diverse backgrounds, contacts, knowledge and skills, to provide the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board and our management teams with a wide-ranging view.

We want people who have:
• a desire to influence the health system to be consumer-centred
• experience and some understanding of the whole health system to advocate consumer interests
• the ability to co-design health services to improve patients’ experience of services as well as the services themselves
• ideally, a network of contacts with other consumer and community groups.

The Terms of Reference and membership application form are available online:
www.nmdhb.govt.nz/consumer-council

The application form can also be obtained from our Board Secretary:
Gaylene Corlett, Board Secretary, NMDHB Corporate Office, Private Bag 18, Nelson South.
Phone: (03) 546 1723
Email: gaylene.corlett@nmdhb.govt.nz.

Applications must be received by the Board Secretary by 5pm 20 January 2017
