About WA Health
WA Health is Western Australia’s public health system.
Our purpose is to ensure healthier, longer and better lives for all Western Australians.
WA Health is Western Australia’s public health system. With a State spanning over 2.5 million square kilometres, it is the largest area in the world covered by a single health authority.
We employ 40,000 dedicated staff in metropolitan, regional and remote areas of the State to attend to the health needs of our growing population.
In the 2015/16 financial year, we received more than 1,020,000 visits to our emergency departments and performed over 86,000 elective surgeries.
In recent years, WA Health has undergone a significant transformation with more than $7 billion invested in new and existing services and infrastructure. This investment, together with the commitment of our dedicated staff, ensures we can deliver on our vision to deliver a safe, high quality and sustainable health system for all Western Australians.
The UK Recruitment Office in London has been established to assist doctors, nurses and midwives with advice about potential roles within WA Health and opportunities for visa sponsorship.
