News Update for week ending 26 April 2002


Health minister Annette King says a stocktake of the New Zealand health workforce, which collates information on more than 10,000 health and disability workers, will be invaluable for future workforce planning.

The New Zealand Health Workforce: A stocktake of Issue and Capacity 2001, is the first report of the Health Workforce Advisory Committee. It brings together information on the wider health workforce including social workers, support workers and other health workers for the first time.

"The health workforce is not confined to doctors and nurses. All of those working in the sector need to work together to improve the health of New Zealanders. Individual employers or health practitioners cannot solve health workforce issues alone and solutions need to be found collaboratively."
