Rural Workforce Data
Each year, Rural Health West conducts a survey of all general practices and general practitioners currently practicing in rural and remote Western Australia. Typically, the survey has a response rate of around 70% providing contemporary valid data about trends in rural general practice workforce to support workforce policy and planning. This data from this survey is compiled in the Annual MDS Report and Workforce Analysis update, published in April each year.
Please visit the Rural Workforce Data and Information page to view the Report and Fact Sheets.
