Allied Health Assistants Recognised at Last – Do You Qualify?

18 July 2018

You might be eligible to move from the OPS classification structure into the new Allied Health Assistants stream.

Not on the list?
The PSA is still in discussions with OPS and SA Health because we believe other groups of employees have clinical supervision or delegation by Allied Health Professionals. If you think you are one of those, fill in the survey (on line survey)

The PSA wants to make sure as many people as possible get the opportunity to move to the new classification stream to access a better career path that better values your work.

Please pass this on to other OPS staff and encourage them to fill in the survey and join the PSA. PSA members will have the protection of ensuring the process is carried out properly and the ability to dispute unsatisfactory outcomes.
