2019 Hospital Health Check Survey results


The results

The release of the full results of the 2019 Hospital Health Check (HHC) have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but are now available.

The findings reveal critically poor working conditions for Victorian DiTs, even prior to the pandemic. It is troubling to know that trainees will now be stretched even further. This is in addition to the considerable toll that necessary measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have taken on trainee education, examinations and career progression.

AMA Victoria will use the HHC findings to continue advocating to health services and the DHHS for urgent and longer-term changes to protect trainees and their patients.


The survey's findings include:
