Remote Clinical Appraisals Update



As previously reported ASMOF took NSW Health to the NSW Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) over hospitals not paying members their entitlements when undertaking a ‘clinical appraisal remotely’ under clause 12(ix) of the Public Hospital Medical Officers Award.

That’s is on-call medical officers (Doctors in Training) are entitled to receive a minimum of one-hour overtime payment for clinical advice provided over the phone.

The IRC heard evidence over three days of hearings and we expect that a decision will be handed down soon.

As soon as we get a decision we will update members.

All members should continue to submit their claims using the form in the Payment to Medical Officers Undertaking a Clinical Appraisal Policy Directive, and keep a log of all calls taken.

If you know of any Doctors in Training who haven’t yet joined the union, there is no better time to ask them to join.

Tell them to call us at 9212 6900 or just forward them the following link so they can join today
