In the 2018 settlement of the PSA Allied, Public Health & Technical MECAs (Auckland and ‘Rest of New Zealand’) it was agreed that Allied Health Career Frameworks would be developed. This work would be done in collaboration with the PSA.
This agreement was in response to a number of PSA member issues around remuneration of designated and advanced practice positions.
The common interest of the DHBs and PSA was on consistency and transparency of how the DHBs intend to remunerate designated and advanced practice positions.
The following principles are intended to support consistency of the scope of the work across the DHBs.

The South Island Allied and Public Health Career Framework
Using the document from three North Island DHBs (Wairarapa, Hutt Valley and Capital and Coast) as the starting point, the SI DHBs and PSA have worked together to create a Career Framework that recognises the unique and diverse working environment of the AH professions in Te Waipounamu. This framework has been finalised and released on 12th October 2020, for implementation across the South Island.
