In response to growing population demands, the ACT Government will split the current ACT Health Directorate into two organisations, effective from 1st October this year.
One organisation will be responsible for clinical operations focusing on the operational delivery of quality health services to the community. The other will be responsible for strategic policy and planning stewardship of the ACT’s health system, including health protection and promotion services.
Reporting to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing and Minister for Mental Health, you will be accountable for the delivery of acute, subacute, primary and community-based health services for the people of the ACT and surrounding region.
This will include responsibility for the Canberra Hospital which is an acute care teaching hospital of approximately 600 beds and a tertiary referral centre that provides a broad range of specialist services to the people of the ACT and South East NSW.
You will also be responsible for the new University of Canberra Public Hospital: Specialist Centre for Rehabilitation, Recovery and Research which will become operational from mid-2018 and will have capacity for 140 inpatient beds, 75 day places and additional outpatient services.
You will be expected to work closely with a range of key stakeholders, including the medical profession, allied health professionals, academic institutions, non-government organisations, community groups and other ACT Government Directorates.
To be successful in this role, you will need to be an outstanding leader with an impressive record of achievement in a large, complex and politically sensitive health care organisation. You will also have a proven capacity to drive change, demonstrated ability to broker decisions through collaboration and consensus, and a personal style that engenders trust and respect.
Applicants for this position will need to have a proven record of achievement in the provision of high quality client-focussed clinical and allied health services, preferably gained in a large state, territory or regional health service.
