EOI – SESLHD Voluntary Assisted Dying Working Group

South Eastern Sydney LHD is seeking expressions of interest from GPs for their Voluntary Assisted Dying Working Group.

The Working Group will meet for one hour per month; GPs will be paid $130 per hour for preparation and attendance at these meetings. The Working Group will be operational for a period of at least 8 months to the end of 2023.

Send in your expressions of interest by Friday 28 April 2023. Please email CESPHN’s Palliative Care Program Officer at info@cesphn.com.au.


The Working Group will be accountable to the SESLHD Voluntary Assisted Dying Governance Committee (VADGC) on matters relating to voluntary assisted dying and will be supported by the SESLHD VAD Project Manager.

The Working Group will have multiple functions, including:

  • To provide input and expertise into the development of key deliverables and aspects of voluntary assisted dying implementation in SESLHD.
  • To ensure readiness in time for the commencement date, the working group will progress multiple complex deliverables concurrently. Firm timeframes during the implementation period will be set to ensure that each deliverable is progressed in a timely manner that fits into the broader project plan.
