The Rural and Remote Special Interest Group (SIG)was established to include the voices of& rural and remote consumers in all CHF's policy and advocacy work. This SIG helps identify where improvements can be made and contributes to the cultural changes needed among health professionals, health managers, health services and the wider community for sustainable improvements in rural and remote health.

  • Are you consumer representative or advocate with experience in a rural or remote setting?
  • Are you interested in and have views about how health services are delivered to consumers in rural and remote locations?

Participating in the SIG offers consumers the opportunity to review and consult on government initiatives, identify and draw attention to areas for improvement, and support CHF’s policy development and advocacy work.

The group advises CHF. Final policy positions are made by the CHF Board.

The time commitment is to attend a monthly online meeting and to read documents and provide comments between meetings. No sitting fees or reimbursement is offered to participants.
