    Established in 2000, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Community Advisory Committee is a statutorily required advisory committee to the RCH Board.

    The Community Advisory Committee advises the RCH Board in relation to two critical areas:

         1.    establishing and maintaining effective systems to facilitate and monitor consumer, carer and community perspectives.

         2.    the integration of consumer, carer and community perspectives into all levels of the RCH's decision making. This includes but is not limited to operations, planning, policy  development, quality activities and major initiatives to improve outcomes patients and the community in accord with the RCH strategic directions.

    Representing the consumer, carer and community voice and advising on key areas of improvement and growth is at the core of being an RCH Community Advisory Committee member. Members are a voice that represent the diverse community we serve - a voice for patients, families, guardians and carers.

    Community Advisory Committee members are appointed in an advisory capacity to the RCH Board, as a legislated advisory committee (although with no executive authority).
