Clinical Network Executive
We build capability in the health system by creating connections.
The Clinical Network Executive brings together the Leads from the Statewide Clinical Networks with South Australia’s professional leads and key executives from SA 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.
