Minimum Data Set

Health Workforce Queensland maintains an up-to-date database of the general practitioner workforce in remote, rural and regional Queensland that is informed by an annual survey of General Practices and General Practitioners, and a variety of other strategies.

The locations for which data have been collected are those defined under the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Remoteness Areas (RA) system and covers areas from Inner Regional Queensland (RA 2) through to Very Remote Queensland (RA 5). These summary reports represent a minimum specified set of data based on a data snapshot taken on 30 November each year.

Information generated by the minimum data set informs policy development relevant to the remote, rural and regional health workforce at local, state and national levels, and supports services for the recruitment and retention of remote, rural and regional medical professional services in Queensland.
