Consumer Reference Group
The Consumer Reference Group (CRG) aims to bring the consumer, carer and community voice to the work of the OEPCP.
The group provides an important platform for suggestions, feedback, ideas and advice from a community perspective on the projects initiated and undertaken by the OEPCP, other organisations and committees. We aim to bring real-life experience and perspective to the work presented; ensuring that the perspective of people using local health and community services is reflected in planning for and delivery of local services.
The CRG aims to ensure that this type of person-centred approach develops and grows in the Outer East and that as a result, local services better meet the needs and aspirations of the community.
