Results of the 2018 workforce survey

Media releases

We're pleased to present the results of our 2018 Workforce Survey. The survey is an important annual event for Council, and is informed by data collected through the practising certificate renewal process.

The survey provides a snapshot of the current medical workforce and gives insights into the changing demographics of the profession, and the trends around where and how much doctors are working.

To doctors - thank you for participating and for the work you do in service of New Zealanders. To other readers, we trust the workforce survey will be of interest and use to you.
