Hospital Health Check

AMA (WA) 2023 Hospital Health Check Report_cover

With questions on morale and culture, wage theft, payslips and bullying, and a continued focus on education for career progression and access to leave, the Hospital Health Check was developed by DiTs for DiTs. The annual survey originated here in WA, back in 2015, and has since been adopted by other AMA state and territory offices. 

Responses to HHC are anonymous. Furthermore, all responses are collated, analysed and reported by the AMA (WA) independent of the hospitals. All DiTs are invited to participate in the survey, and strongly encouraged to respond freely and openly. This year the methodology changed to capture data by Employer/Health Service Provider (HSP), reflective that DiTs apply to work for a HSP and may be placed at multiple sites. 

Results from the 2023 AMA (WA) Hospital Health Check, based on surveys completed by more than 700 DiTs, found high levels of burnout prevalent at most work sites. There were some overall improvements compared to the disastrous results of 2022. Nevertheless, issues such as bullying, discrimination and harassment remain critical concerns. 

With the data gathered from the 2023 HHC survey, the AMA (WA) and the Doctors in Training Practice Group will continue to progress and prosecute issues on your behalf, so that you can focus on patient care and your journey to specialisation.
