The Consumer Council promotes and oversees consumer involvement in the planning and delivery of Waikato DHB services, and provides advice to the Waikato DHB’s board and senior management.
It has 15 members (including two co-chairs) with a range of skills, ages, experience, qualities and networks, importantly those who have personal or family experience in accessing health services.
All members bring their own experiences to the Consumer Council. They are not representatives of any specific organisation or community.
The Consumer Council works in partnership with the DHB to provide a consumer perspective and help shape health services and make sure they meet the needs of Waikato communities.
