SA Health Focus Week

In reply to the Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) ().16 May 2023).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): The Minister for Health and Wellbeing has advised:

SA Health developed and ran a focus week this year to help give our clinicians the bandwidth to ensure our system can run as well as possible to meet the needs of our patients.

While focus week is not the singular solution to address ramping, it is important our clinicians have the opportunity to develop and trial new initiatives that could improve hospital flow and system capacity.
