Advisory groups

We know many minds are bet­ter than one. So we’ve estab­lished our advi­so­ry groups to help us with the insights and knowl­edge to keep us rel­e­vant and make sure we are work­ing on projects that enable pos­i­tive change.

Clin­i­cal Advi­so­ry Council

The Clin­i­cal Advi­so­ry Coun­cil is our peak body for advice, insight and support.

Our Coun­cil mem­bers have an amaz­ing breadth and depth of expe­ri­ence, from clin­i­cal and non­clin­i­cal back­grounds, with per­spec­tives from with­in and out­side health.

This con­nec­tion fos­ters col­lab­o­ra­tion and forms rela­tion­ships across agen­cies to deliv­er bet­ter health care with min­i­mal bureaucracy. 

The group is led by the group appoint­ed chair, SA Health’s Chief Allied Health and Sci­en­tif­ic Offi­cer, Cather­ine Turn­bull. Cather­ine focus­es the group on respond­ing to the clinician’s requests for advice and find­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to share knowl­edge and learn from each other.
