Health Workforce: State Government Victoria

Victoria's health workforce is critical to the overall success of the state's health system.

The ageing population and increasing burden of chronic disease present new challenges to health service delivery in Victoria. Similarly, evolving technologies and models of care also generate new opportunities for us to develop and grow our health system for the future.

The Department of Health values the contributions made by all health professionals to address these challenges and shape a dynamic and responsive health system for all Victorians.
