LHAC Off To Great Start Reigniting Passion For Health In 2024

Written by: The Hilltops Phoenix


Harden-Murrumburrah Local Health Advisory Committee is forming again after falling idle in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of the community met last week to re-establish the Harden-Murrumburrah Local Health Advisory Committee (LHAC).

The Harden-Murrumburrah LHAC had wound down through the COVID pandemic, but now the level of interest from local health enthusiasts has prompted a call for the return of the LHAC to the twin towns.

Seven residents met for the first time with representatives from the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) and the Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network (MPHN) to confirm their interest in re-establishing the committee and discuss the role of the LHAC.

Flexible Care Manager Angla Leitner said the opportunity to re-establish the LHAC was a significant step in representing and advocating for the community.

“It’s important for our community to have representation and there are lots of opportunities to improve communication, access to services, and for us to have a voice to improve access and equity in health services through this committee,” Ms Leitner said.

LHAC membership is open to members of the community interested in being involved in improving health outcomes for local people.

LHAC members are vocal advocates for better health in our region.

Members are actively involved in providing feedback to the health services and also get involved in health promotion, service planning and identifying and generating ideas for innovation and improvement in health.
