20 Yorke Peninsula Country Times Wednesday, January 4, 2017
The Federal Government has appointed SA Rural Health Network (trading as Country SA PHN) to work with
rural communities in SA to enhance the delivery of focused and appropriate health services. The goal of
Country SA PHN is to improve overall efficiency and effectiveness of medical services and to improve
coordination of care in rural South Australia.
An exciting opportunity is available within our Regional Strategies team to work from Kadina with local
communities located in Yorke Peninsula and Port Pirie region, with support provided to the Mid North and
Lower North as required.
The Regional Coordinator is a pivotal role, being the public face of the Country SA PHN. This position would
suit an applicant with strong stakeholder and relationship management abilities, a passion for community
engagement and the ability to build local collaborations.
The aim of the Regional Coordinator role is to build relationships with and coordinate supports for medical
general practice, allied health, community and social services with the intent of contributing to improvement
of health service coordination and local health outcomes.
An important aspect of the role is to support continuing professional development and networking
opportunities for clinicians. Equally important is the ability to support PHN clinical and community
governance structures and processes.
Regional Coordinators receive robust and regular support from their Regional Manager to ensure their local
activities align with the objectives of the federal requirements for PHNs.
Experience in the health sector is a distinct advantage as is knowledge of the Commonwealth Government six
priority areas for PHNs.
This position offers a generous salary, salary sacrificing options and flexible working conditions but requires
applicant flexibility to meet the changing needs of the organisation and rural communities.

Kadina family wins car
BRENT and Audra Hines, of
Kadina, received an early
Christmas gift, winning a new car
through an Adelaide Crows raffle.
The Toyota Yaris Ascent was a
major prize in the Crows Football
“Brent buys a book every year
because we are gold members but
puts it in my name because he
thinks I’m lucky,” Mrs Hines said.
“They tried to ring me but I
didn’t get to the phone so they
rang Brent asking for me and he
said to them, ‘If you are trying to
sell us another book, we’re not
interested because we never win’.
“The woman on the phone told
Brett he might change his mind
but couldn’t tell him what I won
because it wasn’t in his name.”
The couple picked up their
prize from Gunnings Kadina on
Friday, December 23.
“We were really excited when
we found out and I just didn’t
believe it,” Audra said.
“I get pretty pumped if I win
anything but we have never won
something of this size before!”

Share the beach with plovers
SCHOOL holidays means beach time
for thousands of visitors and residents
but crowds are asked to look out for the
endangered hooded plover.
The hooded plover, affectionately
known as a hoodie, lives its entire life
on the beach.
It breeds between August and March
by laying eggs on the sand above the
high tide mark.
Hoodie numbers have been declin-
ing across southern Australia and the
species is now considered vulnerable to
“The hooded plover has one of the
lowest breeding success rates in the
world and the next couple of months
are critical to avoid a further decline in
the population,” Natural Resources
Northern and Yorke community
ranger Janet Moore said.
“Hooded plover chicks have hatched
at a number of Yorke Peninsula beach-
es and we are asking people to be aware
of nests and give them plenty of space
as the tiny, fluffy chicks start roaming
beaches to find food.
“It’s hard for the hoodies to find a
spot on the beach that isn’t disturbed
by visitors and vehicles.
“Every time they leave their nests,
the eggs and chicks are vulnerable to
predators and extreme temperatures.”

sighting, contact Natural Resources
