Workforce Support

We support doctors, nurses and allied health professionals and their families, so they can keep supporting our communities.

The retention of medical and health professionals in rural and remote parts of the state is of acute importance in providing quality and continued health care to these communities. We understand the issues affecting the regional, rural and remote Queensland workforce and we are responsible for administering a number of programs to help support the health workforce in these areas.
