Our Strategic Plan and welcoming new clinicians

I hope that you all had a happy and safe Australia Day weekend, surviving the heatwave!

Strategic Plan 2019-2024

A key focus for us this month is our work towards developing our Strategic Plan 2019-2024.

One of the ways we are finding out what matters to staff is through an online Strategic Plan staff survey.  I am pleased to let you know that the survey is now open.

Please click here to complete the survey.

The survey will only take a few minutes to complete, and will provide us with valuable insights into how you think Northern Health should look five years from now.

The survey will be open for three weeks – giving everyone plenty of time to participate and get actively involved.

It is important that we all share our views, working together to build a health service we all enjoy working in, while we continue to provide trusted care to our community.

Along with the survey, our strategic planning team will be visiting all campuses over the next couple of weeks to talk to our staff about their vision and strategic goals for Northern Health. I encourage you to participate in the conversation and have your say.

This will be a great opportunity for you to have a conversation with the planning team, share your vision of Northern Health in 2024, and contribute to creating strategic pillars for the future.

My upcoming Chief Executive Forums will also be a time to find out more about the Strategic Plan. [Please see below]

Welcome to our 2019 interns and graduates

This month we are welcoming  40 new interns, 10 new hospital medical officers and 54 graduate nurses and midwives to our health service.

It is always great to see our Northern Health community grow, and with each new intake comes passion, skills and knowledge that will ensure we continue to provide trusted care to our community.

I wish all new staff good luck on the beginning of their Northern Health journey, and hope they have an enjoyable and rewarding time working and learning with us.

Thank you to everyone on a fantastic start to the year.
