Allied Health Clinical Council

The Allied Health Clinical Council (AHCC) is an advisory committee to our Board.

The AHCC focuses on strategies to:

  • improve health and wellbeing of people in our region through high-quality, accessible and integrated primary healthcare
  • address issues facing allied health professionals in the region

Allied health professionals across a range of disciplines representing all four local government areas in our region are members of the AHCC.

The AHCC meets four times per year. More detail on the role and purpose of the AHCC is detailed in the Terms of Reference.

Interested in joining the AHCC?

We are currently looking for allied health practitioners to join our Clinical Council.  Benefits of joining include:

  • Informing the direction of primary care in the region
  • Contributing to improved health services in the region
  • Networking with other allied health professionals
  • Keeping informed of new initiatives
  • Developing your governance and leadership skills

Members are remunerated for their time, and we offer online attendance to make it easier for members across the region to participate.

To fill current vacancies, we are looking for practitioners working in private practice in the Blue Mountains (ideally dietitians, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, or audiologists). However, we welcome enquiries from any allied health professional in the Nepean Blue Mountains region who is interested to know more about joining the AHCC.
