Community Committee

Otway Health

The Otway Health Community Advisory Committee (OHCAC) is a group of local volunteers, Board Members, the leader of Marrar Woorn Neighbourhood House, and representatives from the Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation. It’s purpose is to obtain first hand news, information, feedback, ideas and suggestions directly from consumers.

Community representatives from the OHCAC go out into the community and hear from individuals and families about their opinions and expectations of Otway Health, and report directly to the CAC on a bi-monthly basis to raise issues, awareness and recommendations for the Otway Health Board to consider. From here, the Board works in conjunction with consumer recommendations to create action plans that target consumer needs and provide solutions.

The Community Liaison Committee (CLC) comprises at least two board members, LCH staff, a representative of the Lorne Community & Hospital Auxiliary, and community representatives.

The CLC meets 4 times per year, and in addition, conducts community forums with the wider community. Community forum dates and themes will be published to the broader community and participation in these forums is encouraged.
