Latest Community News – April ’22

Alpine Shire Council meeting – Mt Beauty 3rd May

The Alpine Shire Council was due to hold the March meeting in Mount Beauty. Unfortunately, this had to be cancelled due to Covid requirements. 

The Mount Beauty Council meeting has now been scheduled for Tuesday, May 3rd, possibly at the Community Centre at 5:00 pm. This venue will be confirmed in the next week.

A Council meeting was held in Myrtleford in April and there were no community members in the public gallery.

Our community opinion in the past has been that Council should hold meetings outside Bright. If this is to continue there needs to be a community personally attending the meeting. 

If you have any concerns or questions about Council business come to the meeting, voice your concerns and actually meet the Councilors.

Watch for confirmation of the venue.

Feedback About Alpine Health — Services & Supports

Alpine Health now partners with Care Opinion to gather feedback from our hospital patients, aged care residents and community clients. We encourage and welcome all feedback as learning about your experiences will help to improve our services and support.

Care Opinion is independent and confidential, so you or your loved ones can feel safe to provide any negative feedback without concern that future care may be impacted. You can tell us about your positive experiences as staff love to hear about what they are doing well.

Not sure how to tell your story or support someone to share theirs? Consider attending one of the Care Opinion workshops (see link below) to learn about how the platform works and how to write about your experience with Alpine Health. The workshop also covers how Care Opinion will share your feedback with Alpine Health.
