Medical Workforce Report

The Western Australian public health sector (WA Health) is facing increasing pressure to meet the growing demand for healthcare services; it has the second lowest specialist to population ratio in Australia and is functioning within a tight fiscal environment, while adapting to an activity based funding/management (ABF/M) model. WA Health’s ability to deliver a high quality health service in the future will be totally dependent upon the capacity to supply, and equitably distribute, an appropriately skilled medical workforce to meet this demand.
