Engaging with the National Medical Workforce Strategy 2021–2031

Understand how we are consulting about the strategy and how you can keep up to date.

Who is involved

Governments, medical workforce peak bodies, the medical sector, and education and training bodies work together to lead and support implementation activities for the National Medical Workforce Strategy 2021–2031.

The Australian Government and state and territory governments will work in partnership with medical workforce stakeholders to support their implementation efforts and initiatives.

Stakeholder consultation

To make sure we consider a wide variety of views and understand all of the issues, we consult widely with stakeholders, including:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peak bodies
  • Australian Government and state and territory health departments
  • clinicians and medical administrators
  • community and consumer representatives
  • medical associations and peak bodies
  • medical regulators
  • universities and medical schools
  • medical specialist colleges
  • rural, regional and remote clinicians
  • Rural Workforce Agencies
  • Primary Health Networks
  • public and private hospitals
  • student and junior doctor representatives.

As well as the stakeholder input provided through the Medical Workforce Reform Advisory Committee, we regularly consult medical workforce stakeholders to plan and progress implementation activities. The National Medical Workforce Strategy Stakeholder engagement plan underpins these activities.

As we implement the strategy we will update our web pages and keep you informed about our progress.
