You state that there wasn't a consumer representative at the last meeting. Derek concedes that the process was not ideal; but his Department had pressing time and budgetary restraints. 

You know that it is too late to change the outcome on this issue now, as the website will be up and running within the fortnight. You instead suggest that the Committee look at how it might incorporate consumer consultation into reviewing and evaluating the website; and ask them to commit to having a broader discussion about consumer consultation at a future meeting. 

Your idea is supported by the representative from the Health Peak, who suggests it be placed on the Agenda for the next meeting. You're pleased that another member has engaged in the discussion, and mentally note down her interest in this issue. She may be a useful ally in the future. Derek agrees to engage in a discussion about incorporating consumer consultation into a review of the website.
