    The particular Clause of the an ALLIED HEALTH WORKER'S MOA, for the terms and conditions of employment regarding the Clinical Allowances states and I quote :
    "CLAUSE 8.7 CLINICAL ALLOWANCE
    8.7.1 WHERE AN ALLIED HEALTH WORKER IS AUTHORISED BY THE RELEVANT SUPERVISOR TO ACCOMPANY A MEDICAL OFFICER ON WARD ROUNDS, AND INTERACTS PHYSICALLY WITH A PATIENT, HE OR SHE SHALL BE ENTITLED TO BE PAID A CLINICAL ALLOWANCE." end of quote.
    In your professional opinion what do you think about this clause first hand.
    Hint: how many types or categories of allied health workers are eligible to be paid clinical allowance?

    How can this clause be structured differently to get a clear meaning.

    Questions: a) Does it relate to either or both conditions to be satisfied in order to qualify to be paid a clinical allowance.

    I'm assuming this is a "homework" type question? It should go in the appropriate forum.
