He has ‘lived experience’ of the health care system as well as experience as a Consumer Representative member of advisory committees in Public/Private health care settings, tertiary institutes and with NSW Health.

Brad Rossiter
Brad is one of HCNSW individual members and an outstanding patient advocate and health consumer representative who is happy to tell his story, as well as listen to others to help tell theirs. At the age of five, Brad was diagnosed with on-set Type 1 Diabetes. He managed - played sports, moved to Batemans Bay, became a butcher, married, and had a child. But in 1996, his health took a turn for the worse. Kidney disease and eye troubles started catching up with him. He received the greatest of gifts from someone whom I don’t know and have never met – a double organ donation! Brad is a consumer representative with ACI and the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC). His role is to provide feedback from experiences, and to take information to consumers for their feedback and a consumer representative for the ACI Rural Health Network Executive. The purpose of this committee is to have a regional and rural voice at the table. I’m bringing feedback on issues from regional and rural consumers.
