Disability Access and Inclusion Plan

Fremantle Hospital and Health Service (FHHS) is committed to ensuring people with disability, their families, carers and staff are not discriminated against in any way.

Under the Disability Services Act (1993), FHHS is required to develop and implement a Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).

The aim of the DAIP is to provide a framework for systematic work towards improving access to services for people with a disability in the following areas:

  • acess to services and events
  • physical access to buildings and facilities
  • provide information in accessible formats
  • provide a quality service
  • allow equal opportunity to make complaints/provide feedback
  • allow equal opportunity to participate in public consultation
  • equal opportunity practices in place for employment programs.

An electronic copy of the current FHHS DAIP (2012-2017) (PDF 428KB) or Word 523KB is available

The Disability Advisory Committee (DAC)

The DAC provides a forum to discuss access and service provision for people with disability.

Committee members include people from across the health service as well as community representatives who either have a disability or represent people with disability.

Key roles of the Disability Advisory Committee

  • Review consumer feedback and make changes to the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).
  • Implement and monitor the Fremantle Hospital and Health Service’s DAIP.

Feedback on the DAIP, as well as comments or suggestions to improve access to FHHS services, facilities and information is welcome at any time.
