Statewide Clinical Networks
A key priority of the State Government is to rebalance the health system in South Australia in a way that represents the needs of the community, delivers the highest standards of safe and quality care and is economically viable for the future.
The Minister for Health and Wellbeing is committed to working in partnership with clinicians, consumers and stakeholders to achieve this priority.
As part of this commitment, SA Health is re-establishing Statewide Clinical Networks in 2019 as priorities for improvement in the South Australian health system are identified and agreed.
Statewide Clinical Networks are groups of health professionals, health service organisations, consumers and carers who work collaboratively with the goal of high quality care.
They operate across the continuum of care, across private and public sectors and across all Local Health Networks — both country and metropolitan.
The first three Statewide Clinical Networks are currently being formed. These are the:

- Statewide Urgent Care Clinical Network - Terms of Reference (PDF 247KB).
We are now establishing the Cancer Clinical Network as our fourth Statewide Clinical Network. The draft terms of reference for this are found here:
