New South Wales Department of Health (2011)

Aboriginal workforce strategic framework 2011-2015.

Sydney: Department of Health, New South Wales

The purpose of this document is to help the New South Wales (NSW) Department of Health achieve its goal of increasing the size of its Aboriginal workforce.

NSW Health aims to:

  • increase the number of Aboriginal employees to 2.6% across the NSW public health sector
  • increase the number of Aboriginal people working in all health jobs
  • develop partnerships between the health and education sectors to deliver real change for Aboriginal people wanting to enter the health workforce, and improve career pathways for existing Aboriginal staff
  • provide leadership and planning in Aboriginal workforce development
  • tap into the increasing pool of Aboriginal university graduates undertaking health courses
  • build a NSW health workforce which closes the gap in health outcomes between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people by providing culturally safe and competent health services.

This Framework is a tool to help NSW Health achieve these Aboriginal workforce goals. It assists NSW Health employees with:

  • planning
  • prioritisation
  • target setting
  • monitoring
  • reporting of progress in Aboriginal health workforce capacity building.

In 2011, Aboriginal people made up 1.8% of the NSW Health workforce. To achieve its goal of 2.6% representation, an increase of a further 1,400 Aboriginal employees is needed by 2015. This is the equivalent of an additional 280 people per year across NSW.
