It’s been a big year for our Westmead Redevelopment consumers. Last Thursday, we thanked them for their hard work at our final meeting for the year. During the meeting we recapped achievements in 2017, looked ahead to 2018 and presented gifts of appreciation.
Consumers are a key part of our planning and design process. During 2017, consumers participated in a number of project user groups (PUGs). These groups influence the planning and design of the new central acute services building, the refurbished areas inside Westmead Hospital and healthcare services undergoing redesign processes.
Throughout 2017, consumers also provided advice on the community consultation process, which has included dozens of workshops and meetings with diverse community groups across western Sydney. Consumers shared their personal contacts so members of the Westmead Redevelopment project team could discuss the project with a range of community groups, showing artist’s impressions and asking the question: “what matters to you?”
