National Workforce Survey

The Department of Health undertook a snapshot survey of the national pathology laboratory workforce in 2010 which was intended to cover all service delivery personnel groupings in public & private medical pathology testing laboratories throughout Australia. It was intended to provide the first ever comprehensive national insight into the structure of the national pathology workforce with a view to assisting all jurisdictions and professional groups in assessing and addressing pathology workforce requirements for future service demand.
