A strong health workforce

Tuesday 12 October, 2021

There are significantly more doctors, nurses, midwives, ambulance officers and health staff employed now, than when Labor was last in government.

We’re making our health system stronger to meet our future needs - and this means delivering even more.

In addition to the record numbers of doctors, nurses and health staff we currently have, we’re recruiting an extra 1,200 nurses and midwives to ensure we are COVID-ready, and are expanding EDs and bed capacity across our hospital network.
