How to develop and publish a circular
WA Health has a policy and guideline for the Operational Directive and Information Circular Distribution system. The policy and guideline provides you with information on mandatory requirements for the development, approval, publication and dissemination of circulars in WA Health.
Operational Directives are policy statements that are approved by the Director-General of Health and are mandatory for all WA Health staff to comply with.
Information Circulars are documents that provide advice or guidance within WA’s public health system. ICs are not policy statements, although they may be used to advise the existence or change in status of a policy statement.
