THE Roma Hospital is urging residents to have their say on the future of health services in Roma at a public forum.

Director of nursing Sue Freiberg said the invitation to attend the forum was open to anyone in the district with an interest in the region's health services.

"We want to find out what the community wants for our hospital," she said.

"The purpose of this forum is to engage the community and look at significant issues for the future of the hospital.

"It's changing the way we do business."

The forum will establish a new Community Advisory Network with a member of the community to be appointed as the CAN chairperson, who will represent the community at quarterly meetings of the South West HHS Board.

The chairperson will then report back to the CAN at meetings once a month.

These meetings will remain open to anyone who wishes to be part of the advisory network.

South West Hospital and Health Service chief executive Graem Kelly said the CAN would help to identify the community's health needs, allow information to be shared and allow consumers and the community to have input into the planning, development and delivery of public health services.

"Through such a process, the facility will receive ongoing broad community input into the development of services," he said

The forum will be held at the Roma Hospital conference room on Thursday, November 15 starting at 11am.

To RSVP for the forum contact Sue Freiberg on 4624 2700.
