Consultation key to shaping new services

In July Castlemaine Health sought nominations to join the Maternity Services Consumer Committee and help shape the future of maternity services in the region. 
The appointment of eight community representatives, whose professional and personal experience will play an integral role in the development of the new model of care, is an essential step in the process towards reopening the service. 
Committee members come from all walks of life, with deep connections to Castlemaine Health and the community. A full list of members is available on the Maternity Services page at and more details about each person and their role will be shared over the coming weeks.
Maternity Services Consumer Committee chair Anna Howard is an experienced lawyer who has worked locally and in Melbourne.  See the Mail for the full details. Out Now.
