Medical recruiter details number of doctors in health sector

From Checkpoint, 5:25 pm on 9 March 2023

The Health Minister's claim that recruitment of doctors and nurses is going "incredibly well" has suprised some in the industry.

Last night on Checkpoint Dr Ayesha Verall said across the course of this government they'd recruited an additional 1700 doctors and 2700 additional full time equivalents for nurses.

But there are still shortages, however the Health Minister couldn't accurately say how many.
