Consumer and Community Advisory Committee (CCAC)

This committee aims to strengthen the voice of consumers, carers and the community in health and hospital planning, improvement activities and decisions.

The CCAC has 10 health consumer representatives who speak directly, each month, to CQ Health Executives and Senior Managers.

Consumer representatives have a unique and essential role in health service. Without consumer representatives there is often no-one on a committee who can represent a non-medical person and a broader community perspective.

CQ Health is committed to ensuring diverse and inclusive health consumer representation, reflective of our community.
