RWAV was delighted to present at the Latrobe Health Advocate Forum this week on improving access to health services for Latrobe Valley communities. RWAV shared data on GP demographics, training and referral needs within Latrobe and wider Gippsland and provided an overview of RWAV’s program of work.
The role of the Latrobe Health Advocate is to provide independent advice to the Victorian Government on behalf of Latrobe Valley communities on system and policy issues affecting their health and wellbeing. The Advocate works closely with businesses, health services, community organisations and all levels of government to ensure a collaborative approach underpins her advice and activities.
RWAV thanks the office of the Latrobe Health Advocate for the opportunity to present at the stakeholder forum. We look forward to continuing discussions on ways to support the Latrobe workforce through collaborative efforts.
