Healthy North Coast

New organisation for North Coast Allied Health Practitioners

The North Coast Allied Health Association (NCAHA) is seeking to appoint five Directors to serve on the initial governing Board.

The NCAHA region covers the area from Tweed Heads in the north, to Port Macquarie in the south and west to the Great Dividing Range.

The NCAHA will focus on supporting the allied health sector and improving the health of North Coast NSW residents. It will operate as a health promotion charity and will work to make health care delivery easier through health system reform.

NCML’s CEO Vahid Saberi, who has supported the establishment of NCAHA, said the proposal for establishing the Association was firmed up as a result of consultation with allied health clinicians.

“This new organisation will contribute to health planning in the region, and will provide a single point of communication with allied health professionals, advance allied health practice and enhance educational opportunities.”

“NCAHA will also work to improve liaison between allied health and other areas of the North Coast health care system, as well as collaborating and communicating with other relevant regional organisations,” Mr Saberi added.

NCAHA is inviting applications from allied health practitioners interested in becoming a Director of the new Association.
