Call for Interest – NHH Patient and Family Advisory Council Opportunities Available for Advisors Interested in Emergency Care and Maternal/Child Care
If you or your family member has been a patient at Northumberland Hills Hospital (NHH) in the past three years, and you’re over the age of 18, the hospital would like you to consider joining its Patient and Family Advisory Council.
A vehicle to help ensure patient and caregiver perspectives are understood and actively considered throughout NHH, the Patient and Family Advisory Council was established one year ago following an initial call for interest in September, 2016.
Now with seven volunteers and two supporting staff members, the Council is providing input to hospital staff, managers, physicians and the Board on a variety of hospital activities, projects and committees.
“The Advisory Council is one way we are working with patients and caregivers to continuously enhance the quality of care we can provide,” said Linda Davis, NHH President and CEO. “We’re grateful to the generous volunteers who stepped forward last year to form our inaugural Council and we’re pleased to see the opportunities for patient/caregiver input growing further.”
Specific opportunities currently exist for Patient and Family Advisors with experience in and an interest in enhancing NHH services in two key areas:
- Emergency care (one opportunity) and
- Maternal/Child care (two opportunities).
