Clinical Prioritisation Criteria Consumer Engagement Group

Role and function of the Consumer Engagement Group

The Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC) are developed by clinicians for use by referring health practitioners, often General Practitioners (GP), to help referrals into the South Australian public hospital system based on clinical criteria. The CPC will be publicly available and support consumers knowledge of the criteria to access public specialist OP services. The establishment of the CEG is therefore a key element in ensuring the success of the CPC project.

The initial purpose of the CEG is to provide consumer feedback on the delivery of the CPC Project and website development in collaboration with the OP Redesign Project Team. This will help to ensure the information and end user experience is:

  • User friendly
  • Easy to navigate, and
  • Provides easy to understand content

Consumer Engagement Group membership

Membership of the CEG will adapt and change as required over time to ensure the representation reflects the consumer voice as the CPC project progresses. The CEG will have the opportunity to adapt to support other OP Redesign project initiatives as required.


The members of the CEG shall elect the Chair of the Committee from amongst the Committee members. In the absence of the Chair, the members present at any meeting of the Committee shall elect one of their number to chair the meeting.
