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 Com­mis­sion­er and CEIH Exec­u­tive are cur­rent­ly devel­op­ing a new mod­el for the Clin­i­cal Advi­so­ry Coun­cil (CAC) after its ini­tial two-year period.

CEIH CAC will be strate­gic, pro­vid­ing frank, fear­less and trust­ed advice. It will act as a sound­ing board for the CEIH Exec­u­tive on how they dri­ve excel­lence, shape cre­ativ­i­ty and deliv­er impact, pro­vid­ing fresh insight and think­ing on emerg­ing issues for South Australians.

5 or 6 mem­bers will form the advi­so­ry coun­cil, with:

  • gen­der equi­ty and peo­ple with diverse pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence and at var­i­ous stages of their careers
  • skills and expe­ri­ence in deter­min­ing strat­e­gy for large pub­lic organisations
  • expe­ri­ence in deliv­er­ing pub­lic val­ue as senior leaders
  • abil­i­ty to call on a net­work of addi­tion­al skill and expe­ri­ence: inno­v­a­tive thinkers and prob­lem solvers 
  • com­mit­ment to putting imag­i­na­tion to work to deliv­er on the CEIH vision. 

Three for­mal meet­ings a year are antic­i­pat­ed with oth­er engage­ments at the dis­cre­tion of CEIH Executive.

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, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Con­sumer and Clin­i­cal Part­ner­ships, Katie Billing. Sup­port­ed by Deputy Chair, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Sys­tem Design and Plan­ning, Ken Lang.

Youth Advi­so­ry Group

The Youth Advi­so­ry Group (YAG) is a joint ini­tia­tive of the CEIH and the Ado­les­cent Tran­si­tion Care Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­work (SCN) to help us under­stand the voice and health­care expe­ri­ences of young South Aus­tralians, to dri­ve change and improve their health­care out­comes.

The group will pro­vide rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the Ado­les­cent Tran­si­tion Care Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­work as well as col­lab­o­rat­ing with the oth­er Statewide Clin­i­cal Net­works.

The YAG is for young peo­ple between the ages of 12 — 25 years, who reg­u­lar­ly engage with health­care services.
