Community engagement remains a priority for the Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD), its chief executive told the organisation’s annual public meeting in Griffith on Thursday.
“Local Health Advisory Committees have a powerful voice in the community in the dissemination of important health messages, and I also thank all our United Hospital Auxiliaries and hospital volunteers for their ongoing contribution and dedication to our facilities,” MLHD chief executive Jill Ludford said.
“Their enthusiasm in ensuring that our patients receive the little extras is selfless and proves our volunteers are as committed to ensuring our communities’ good health as our staff.”
MLHD board chair Gayle Murphy presented the organisation’s new strategic plan to those gathered at the meeting, while the organisation’s financial position – which has improved on previous years – was also discussed.
This year’s meeting featured the inaugural presentation of the MLHD’s partnership awards, with the Asthma Collaborative and Sexual Health Partnership taking out the two major categories.
