NNSWLHD: Proposed split position, Ballina Community & Allied Health

The HSU has received correspondence from Northern NSW Local Health District about a proposed split Speech Pathologist role in Ballina Community and Allied Health.


The proposal is to split the full time generalist role into two separate positions: (a) Speech Pathology, Child, and Family (24 hours per week) and (b) Speech Pathologist, Adult (20 hours per week). Both of these positions would be recruited to as a new position.
