  • Werribee Community Advisory Group  

    The Werribee Community Advisory Group (WCAG) provides local advice, from a consumer, carer and community perspective to ensure Werribee Mercy Hospital understands and can respond to the needs of the communities it serves. 

    The WCAG meets bi-monthly for 2 hours, usually at Werribee Mercy Hospital. The membership of the group is made up of community members who have an understanding of care provision as they relate to health, aged and/or community care. They have an awareness of issues contributing to consumers within the community who may be disadvantaged or marginalised and make a commitment to quality care for people in need. 

    In 2012/13 the WCAG terms of reference and membership were reviewed and a recruitment drive was undertaken to select members who are representative of the communities served by the hospital. The WCAG has a commitment to the continual improvement of the way Werribee Mercy Hospital relates with the community.

    In June 2013, five committee members were selected:

           Helen Harden
      Say Htoo Ed Moero
      Wende Thompson
      Carol Hare
