Reclassification of Medical Records Staff from ASO1 - ASO2

07 December 2016

The PSA has been supporting ASO1 members working within Medical Records to have their classifications approved at the ASO2 level. This process has been ongoing for some time.

The PSA is adamant that Women's and Children's Health Network (WCHN) Executive Management need to provide a decision as a matter of priority. A formal response was received late last week from WCHN which acknowledged the delay in finalising the matter. It also declared a commitment to providing a determination once the reclassification proposal has been reviewed and approved by the Chief Executive Officer.

The PSA is resolute that a refusal by WCHN to reclassify PSA members employed at the ASO1 level is not acceptable. Failure to achieve this objective will result in all industrial options being considered by the PSA.
