SNSWLHD: Proposed changes to Mental Health and Alcohol & Other Drugs executive team structure

The HSU has received correspondence from Southern NSW Local Health District (SNSWLHD) about a proposed restructure of the Mental Health, Alcohol & Other Drugs executive team structure.


Under the proposed restructure, the position of Manager Priority Programs and Community Partnerships (Health Manager 4) and Senior Allied Health Lead (Principal Psychologist) would be deleted. A new position of Manager Priority Programs, Partnerships and Senior Allied Health Lead (Health Manager 5) would be created.


SNSWLHD says the purpose of the new position is to “manage partnerships with internal and external stakeholders including community managed organisations”.
