With the SMHS Board just a few weeks away from formally commencing, Robyn Collins as Deputy Chair is very much looking forward to helping the health service on its continuing journey to provide innovative health care to the community.

“Along with my fellow Board members, I want to work collaboratively with the SMHS executive and staff to continue to address key priority areas, such as workforce and sustainable services, and the complexities of maintaining a safe and quality health service for the community,” Robyn said.

“I believe we need to modernise our workforce by creating trans-disciplinary teams to meet healthcare demands of our community – both now and in the future – without compromising on service delivery.”

As Chair of the SMHS Safety and Quality Committee, Robyn is also keen to focus on policy initiatives and supporting evidence-based practice.

As the previous Acting Chair of the SMHS Governing Council and an experienced health executive in both state and national tertiary settings, Robyn’s broad knowledge and comprehensive understanding of health care issues in the community and health service administration is a welcomed addition to the SMHS Board and SMHS.

“It is an honour to be appointed to the SMHS Board and I look forward to working with the great team in the health service,” Robyn said.
