What is a Consumer Advisory Body?

A Consumer Advisory Body is a representative group of BCH consumers who come together to discuss key issues about the aged care services offered by BCH as well as about BCH as an organisation. From these discussions, feedback is given to the Board of BCH to support decision making.

Community Advisory bodies are important because they can help improve the quality and safety of the care or service you receive.
