An online community Q & A session will be hosted by West Wimmera Health Services in a first prompted by the increased use of technology during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The format will allow people who might not be able to get to community meetings to provide feedback and learn more about the service.
The Online Community Q & A will be held on June 23 between 1.30 and 2.30pm on Zoom, with a conversational format.
Community members will have the opportunity to ask the health services' chief executive officer and senior staff about programs and facilities available.
"We have noticed that many of our patients, aged care residents and community health clients have greatly increased their use of technology in recent times as a way to communicate with family, friends and health professionals," Chief Executive Officer, Ritchie Dodds, said.
"Traditionally it has been challenging for some people to attend our community meetings in person so we thought why not see if we can find another way to reach out."
Mr Dodds said it was important for the service to keep lines of communication open with the community community
"Sometimes people like to know details about specific programs and this is an opportunity to join us and ask questions about any aspect of the service," he said.
"And of course we always welcome community feedback on how we might be able to improve our service delivery, so it's a two-way conversation".
