As the largest public health system in Australia, NSW Health offers a diverse and exciting range of opportunities and pathways across a number of health disciplines in both small and large health facilities across rural and metro NSW. Whether directly or indirectly involved in patient care, NSW Health employees play a crucial role in contributing to and delivering health services to better the health and wellbeing of the population of NSW.
NSW Health currently employs more than 100,000 people across the public health system.We aim to have a health system that values its workforce as a vital resource and treats its staff fairly. We recognise the importance of having a health workforce that is trained, organised and deployed creatively and intelligently to meet the changing needs of health consumers, carers and the wider population of New South Wales.
There are 15 Local Health Districts that are responsible for providing health services in a wide range of settings, from primary care posts in the remote outback to metropolitan tertiary health centres. Eight Local Health Districts cover the greater Sydney metropolitan regions, and seven cover rural and regional NSW.
