SPIRE Consultation and Working Groups in 2020

HCCA is seeking expressions of interest from consumers interested in taking part in consultations and working groups for the SPIRE infrastructure project in 2020. You can find out more about the SPIRE project here. At this stage we expect that there will be a number of opportunities for consumer involvement next year however details are not yet available. Early in 2020 HCCA will conduct an induction and information session for interested members. Some consultations will be open to all, however those who wish to become a member of an infrastructure committee will also need to complete consumer participation training which will be offered next on Friday 8 and 15 May 2020. If this opportunity interests you and you would like to be kept in the loop about these opportunities, please write a short statement outlining your interest and experience and email it to
