Governance, Remuneration and Nominations Committee
The Governance, Remuneration and Nominations Committee assists the board in the oversight of remuneration paid to the CEO and employees, and makes recommendation of new Director appointees to the Minister and Governor in Council.
Community Advisory Committee
The Community Advisory Committee provides the Board of Management a stronger consumer perspective on the management of the organisation. The Community Advisory Committee is a way for people to get involved and have a say about their local health service. But most importantly the skilled volunteers help us to see the patient and carer experience through their eyes.
It’s an important engagement and governance role – the committee operates according to government legislation and guidelines. Members get to advise the Board, collaborate with staff and advocate for the community. We value and take their perspectives seriously.
Members discuss health issues and health services, get involved in projects and health literacy initiatives, develop patient and consumer information, and help CHRH to keep listening and improving.
