Governing councils

On 1 July 2012, Western Australia officially launched 5 new Health Service Governing Councils, made up of community members and clinicians selected by the Minister for Health.

These high-level Governing Councils had an important role to play in planning, monitoring and reporting on our public health services, and engaging with clinical and community stakeholders. Their establishment made the State’s public health system even more responsive and accountable to the community.

On 30 June, 2015 the Governing Councils were dissolved as WA Health transition to Health Service Boards from 1 July 2016.
