SA Health - Allied Health Assistants Review AHA – Pharmacy Draft Position Descriptors Out for Consultation

18 July 2018

The PSA has received correspondence in relation to the development by SA Pharmacy of draft Position Descriptors for SA Pharmacy Assistant/Technicians to enable a clear understanding of the requirements of AHA-1, AHA-2, AHA-3 and AHA-4. They are now out for consultation (here).

PSA feedback on the draft document has been sought by Department of Treasury and Finance. Therefore, a short consultation period is now open to enable the PSA to respond. The consultation period closes at COB, Friday 20 July 2018. Please send your feedback by email.

The enterprise agreement requires that a review and transition to the new AHA stream be undertaken within six months of the approval of the agreement. The earliest date for translation, noting that the translation arrangements do not apply until the first pay period on or after the prescribed period ( 31 July 2018), is 6 August 2018.

Full details, including the Allied Health Assistant Work Level Definitions and transition arrangements, are contained in Appendix 10 of the South Australian Modern Public Sector Enterprise Agreement: Salaried 2017 (available here).
