Health Workforce Strategy

Find out the different ways you can contribute to developing our Health Workforce Strategy.

We are currently in the process of finalising a 10-year Victorian Health Workforce Strategy, which will provide strategic direction and a framework for workforce development and reform over the coming decade for the whole of the Victorian health workforce.

Key dates

The strategy is due for finalisation in late 2023.


Two rounds of stakeholder consultations have been undertaken to inform the development of the strategy.

Round 1

The first round of consultation was between August and October 2022 with a focus on deep listening and information gathering.

More than 500 participants from over 200 organisations engaged directly through forums, workshops and targeted consults.

A further 3987 participated through an online survey, and 59 written submissions from organisations and individuals were received.

Round 2

Between February and April 2023, a second round of consultations was undertaken.

Nearly 900 participants from across the health system discussed, refined and tested ideas and approaches for the development of the strategy.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the consultation process and providing your time, insights, and expertise.
