The Victorian Health Workforce Strategy (the Strategy), has been developed following extensive consultation that gathered a broad range of perspectives and experiences from over 5,000 people across the health sector during 2022 and 2023.
This Strategy sets out our plan to bolster Victoria’s workforce capacity and capability. It acknowledges existing pressures and provides a roadmap for how we will support our workforce to deliver high-quality healthcare for all Victorians, and ensure they have the workplaces, systems, careers pathways, training, and capacity so that all people across the health system can continue to do their best work.
We will continue to collaborate and partner with the sector to deliver on the vision of the Strategy and drive enduring change for our health workforce and system and ensure the highest quality care for the Victorian community.
The Victorian Government acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we all work and live. We recognise that Aboriginal people in Victoria practice their lore, customs and languages, and nurture Country through their deep spiritual and cultural connections and practices to land and water.
The Victorian Government is committed to a future based on equality, truth, and justice, and acknowledge that the entrenched systemic injustices experienced by Aboriginal people endure.
We pay our deepest respect and gratitude to ancestors, Elders, and leaders – past and present. They have paved the way, with strength and courage, for our future generations.
