Community and stakeholder consultation
A community engagement program, with an online component, was developed at the start of the project to ensure the general public could contribute to the look and feel of the new hospital. Groups represented included:
- young people
- people from non-English speaking backgrounds
- representatives of regional Western Australia
- other health consumers.
Between 2008 and 2010, clinical and community groups also viewed mock-ups of patient and consulting rooms and provided feedback, which has been used to assist the design team in the development of the hospital.
More than 60 non-government organisations, including many in the disability sector, were directly involved in the design of the Fiona Stanley Hospital through participation in workshops and focus groups, surveys and other forums.
The Disability Services Commission (external site) was also consulted throughout the design and planning process. An independent disability access consultant has provided ongoing input and feedback into the design and planning of Fiona Stanley Hospital.
A Community Reference Group was formed in early 2009 and meets quarterly. The Community Reference Group is one of a number of that are consulted about various elements of the hospital’s design and development.
Members of the project team continue to engage with community groups, health consumers, carers, members of the public and other key stakeholders on a regular basis. Engagement includes presenting to local community groups, conducting tours of the site and prototype rooms and attendance at meetings.
Fiona Stanley Hospital has a range of Reference and Technical Advisory Groups informing the development of the hospital. For further information about these groups, call 1800 659 475 or email: email@example.com.
