2018 Hospital Health Check survey now live

Thursday 5 April 2018


The annual Hospital Health Check (HHC) has become a significant survey of issues affecting Doctors in Training (DiTs) in WA and a key tool for advocating on behalf of junior doctors in the WA health system.


The survey is designed for all levels of DiTs – from Interns to Fellows – this year with improved questions, examining a range of issues from working conditions to ongoing education and training. The aim is to find out what YOU want and need for your medical career and life, and how your hospital measures up.


The HHC started in 2015 with 500 participants; last year more than 800 DiTs responded. Each year the collated results are published in the HHC Report Card which covers all the metropolitan hospitals. These results are then discussed with the CEOs and Board Chairs of each of the tertiary hospitals.


In previous years, the Hospital Health Checks have marked a turning point for DiTs on a number of issues including increasing transparency and access to annual leave, improving access to Professional Development Leave and flexible working hours, and highlighting the poor morale at PMH, something which triggered the CAHS Review.


We encourage you to take part in this survey. Your responses are completely anonymous allowing you to be as frank as required on these delicate topics.
