Our consumer group

It is a key priority of the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment to conduct effective and meaningful engagement throughout the lifecycle of the project, particularly as part of the design phase. Successful engagement with a range of consumers helps to ensure the project meets the needs of all sectors of the community.

Following an Expression of Interest application process in late 2021, the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment Consumer Reference Group has now been established.

The group met for the first time in February 2022 to discuss key project milestones and next steps in the project planning and design process.

The Consumer Reference Group will form a partnership between the project team and the community and will contribute to the design of the redevelopment by providing input on a range of aspects of the project including wayfinding, public waiting areas, patient experience and landscaping.

Applications for membership were assessed by a panel of project representatives and hospital executives based on areas of interest and expertise, and connection with the local community to ensure a fair representation of the Ryde community is reflected in the group.

There are many ways to get involved in the project. Opportunities to be part of formal feedback processes and information sessions will be advertised on our website and communicated via email as the project progresses.

You are also invited to send any feedback, suggestions or comments you would like to raise with the redevelopment team at any time by calling 9978 5411 or send us an email rydehospitalredev@health.nsw.gov.au.
