Health Workforce Stakeholder Group

The Health Workforce Stakeholder Group (HWSG) comprises members from a range of health disciplines which contribute to this important group, the HWSG offer advice and insights that challenge and validate the health professions and locations in remote and rural Queensland that are most in need.
