Health Workforce Boost

Monday 11 October, 2021

We're making our health system stronger and COVID-ready so that you can get the care you need, when you need it.

1,200 nurses and midwives will be recruited, in addition to the 370 extra nurses we announced last month.

These positions will target priority roles in EDs, intensive care units and mental health, while also supporting the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Just as we have stayed safe and strong during the pandemic, we are focused on ensuring we remain safe and strong as we transition out of the pandemic.
