Working together delivers results
ALLIED Health Professionals are the backbone of our health service and the second largest professional group after nurses in the Tasmanian Health Service.
After months of unanswered letters, meeting no-shows and industrial action, at a Tas Health Service Industrial Consultative Committee, THS CEO David Alcorn has finally acknowledged that doctors often undervalue the important role AHPs play in our health service and that better outcomes will be achieved if AHPs have a stronger voice.
Better yet, Dr Alcorn committed to creating a dedicated AHP Executive Director role on this executive team and to placing all AHPs in a single clinical stream. This means AHPs will now have a seat and a voice at the THS Executive level for the first time.
Working together delivers results and it’s the AHPs in our Health Service who stood together achieved this. Congratulations to all of you who took industrial action to secure a voice for your profession!
