Become a member

Connect Health & Community is in the process of a voluntary amalgamation with Central Bayside Community Health Services and Star Health, and is therefore, no longer accepting memberships.

The new, amalgamated entity, Better Health Network, will be operational soon and further information about how people can be involved will be communicated in due course.

As it has been for Connect Health & Community, for the new organisation, members will be important to provide input into health services, involvement in the planning and delivery of services and information on the health care needs of the community.
