What is SERTA?
The Department of Health Fees and Charges Register ensures that fees are charged when a private practice service is performed at THHS. This money is then designated to SERTA to fund research and education at a local level.
The SERTA funds are used for the following purposes:
- Grants for study, research, conference and educational purposes for medically-qualified employees of THHS.
- Equipment or property for operational, research and education purposes.
- Funds to the hospital to employ staff who are engaged in research or education.
- Support non-medically qualified THHS employees for the purposes as set out in points (1) and (2), on the recommendation of the RFTAC.
