Part 7 - Protected committees for Safety and Quality assessments

The purpose of Part 7 of the South Australian Health Care Act 2008 is to provide for the authorisation of a person or persons involved in activities associated with undertaking or making assessments, evaluations or recommendations with respect to the practices, procedures, systems, structures or processes of a health service:

  1. where the purpose of any such activity is wholly or predominantly to improve the quality and safety of health services; and
  2. where the public disclosure of, or public access to, information is restricted in order to achieve the best possible outcomes associated with the improvement of health services.

Part 7 s63(2) Health Care Act 2008 (SA)

The Health Care Act 2008 Part 7 Committees Policy Directive (PDF 196KB) has been released to ensure a uniform approach to the establishment and operation of protected committees across SA Health. The Policy provides governance which clearly outlines the responsibilities of committee members and health services.
