View recommendations 23 to 27

  • A pilot of a single integrated workforce system is underway to support workforce planning across WA Health. It will provide necessary workforce data such as payroll, HR, and rostering to enable Health Service Providers to plan and better respond to the changing health needs of the WA community.
  • PathWest Laboratory Medicine WA (external site) and Health Support Services (external site) boards were established and took effect from July 1, 2020. These additional boards join the already established health service provider boards to bring uniformity of governance and accountability across the WA health system.
  • The Minister for Health’s ‘Your Voice in Health’ annual survey provides a platform for employees to share their opinions about their workplace to ensure the WA health system is an employer of choice. The 2021 survey found that WA public health staff are dedicated and passionate about providing high-quality patient care.
