The Healthcare worker wellbeing centre is the first of its kind in Australia.
It provides support for all who work in clinical and non-clinical roles in health services, community health and aged and primary care settings.
The centre is not a physical location. It is a place where all healthcare workers can come anytime, from anywhere to find support and resources. A place to find your centre.
Led by our Chief Clinical Officers, the centre was establshed in February 2021 as part of the Victorian Government's $9.8 million healthcare worker wellbeing package.
