About the role

The clinician’s responsibilities include facilitating assessment and service provision and providing coordination of care, whether hospital or community based, or across different types of services. A multi-disciplinary team supports the clinician and ensures the consumer needs are looked at from a variety of perspectives related to the professional background and skills of the health disciplines.
