Specialist Workforce Capacity Program (SWCP) 2013 summary sheets

The following SWCP summary sheets have been developed to provide an overview of the WA medical workforce based on the SWCP 2013 findings.

The SWCP summary sheets include the following sections:

  • The workforce 2013 to 2021
  • Projected consultant supply and demand 2013 to 2021
  • Workforce distribution 2013
  • Trainees and new fellows
  • Consultant age distribution 2013
  • Workforce planning and risk rating 2013 to 2021.


  • The SWCP summary sheets should be read in conjunction with the User information: Specialist Workforce Capacity Program summary sheets (PDF 239KB).
  • The information provided in the SWCP summary sheets represents a snapshot in time and does not take into account innovation, reform and/or changing models of care. Shortfalls presented are a guide only based on modelling conducted as part of the SWCP. Other approaches could yield different results. The general practice (GP) workforce, including the services provided by proceduralists and non-proceduralists in rural locations, was not captured in the SWCP 2013. A separate SWCP GP summary sheet was developed with information provided by Rural Health West (external site).
