About us

Health Workforce Queensland is the leading workforce agency for health professionals looking to work in rural and remote parts of the sunshine state.

We have been delivering integrated health workforce solutions to remote and rural Queensland communities since 1988. We are committed to the future of the communities we serve and are dedicated to providing and supporting a sustainable health workforce throughout Queensland.

Health Workforce Queensland is part of a broader national network of rural health workforce agencies that are delivering a workforce passionate about ensuring the wellbeing of Australia’s rural and remote communities. We recruit and support the doctors, nurses and allied health professionals needed in rural and remote Queensland and we develop strategies and programs aimed at enhancing the sustainability of health practice in these areas.

We receive funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Rural Health Workforce Australia. The organisation is administered by a Board of Directors made up of elected and appointed representatives.
