PSA Win - Metropolitan Adult Community Mental Health (CMH) - Deloitte Review Dispute

03 March 2017

PSA members' concerns were today vindicated with the outcome of a dispute conference at the SA Industrial Relations Commission being as follows:

  • SA Health advised that their response to the Deloitte recommendations had been consulted with the LHN CE's and agreed by them, and therefore would be provided to unions and staff early next week for consultation.
  • SA Health advised that a two week consultation period would be provided with THE option to extend if unions requested this. The PSA advised that a four week consultation period would be sought due to the importance of this consultation and the number of sites/geographic spread of metropolitan Adult CMH.
  • SA Health gave a commitment that the status quo would remain by the way of no further consultation, planning or progress in relation to any metropolitan Adult CMH areas until such time as consultation on the outcomes had occurred, feedback had been provided by unions, and this feedback then considered by SA Health.

Congratulations to members for raising their concerns on these important matters.

The PSA will issue a further Information Updates and meeting dates for consultation once SA Health's response is received.
