Summary

People in Health has been established to support, strengthen and expand the health and mental health workforce to care for Victoria's complex and growing cohort of patients and clients. The initiative represents the Victorian Government's continuing investment and ongoing commitment to develop Victoria's health workforce, with a focus on ensuring health professionals in Victoria receive the best education and training at every stage of their career. It is underpinned by a record $238 million to train and educate the state's future doctors, nurses and health professionals, and a further investment of $28 million for learning and development programs to support the alcohol and drug and mental health workforce. Under this initiative, partnerships will be strengthened across government, health services, the education sector and professional bodies to ensure Victoria's health professionals are equipped with the best skills, competencies and attributes to deliver high-quality health care for all Victorians.
