Australia Health Practitioner Regulation Agency | Proposed National Triage And Assessment Team | Consultation

26 March 2018

The Public Service Association (PSA) has been advised by AHPRA that, as part of the ongoing development of a national function operating model for notifications, they are proposing to establish a national notification triage and assessment team (transition). The purpose of the team is to inform the development of the future model and respond to current operational needs. The proposed team will be based in the Adelaide and Melbourne offices where this work, apply the triage model is currently done (here).

This proposed change is limited to changing reporting lines and EOI processes only at this stage, with no changes to the terms and conditions of current team members. There may be an extension to the end dates of current fixed term arrangements for some individual team members to align across the national team.

The consultation period is from 23 March 2018 until 3 April 2018. All staff have been provided with individual correspondence and a consultation summary following direct briefings. There are a number of means to provide feedback including an anonymous survey.

Please forward any comments to PSA by email to by midday on 3 April 2018 to allow them to be included in a collated and non-identifying manner in the PSA's response.
