Elective Surgery Strategy Restructure in Northern Adelaide Local Health Network

14 February 2017

The PSA has recently received correspondence advising of a proposed restructure of Elective Surgery Strategy Manager roles at Lyell McEwin Hospital and Modbury Hospital.

The proposal involves the restructure of the two current ASO6 1.0 full time equivalent (FTE) roles to formulate a single ASO7 1.0 FTE Senior ESS Manager, supported by an ASO5 0.5 FTE ESS Manager. The job and person specifications for current and proposed roles are available using the links provided.

The PSA attended a meeting with other industrial bodies to discuss the proposal and raised concerns around the reduction in FTE in an environment where patient activity is ever increasing.

Further meetings will be scheduled at both hospitals to facilitate consultation with all disciplines potentially affected.
