Take your next step with us

Western NSW Local Health District participate in the recruitment of internationally educated health professionals, both through the NSW Health Panel of Overseas Recruitment Agencies (PORA) and also where health professionals apply directly to our facilities.

The Western NSW Local Health District will work with health professionals through the application and immigration process. We are skilled and confident in all aspects of international recruitment, from assisting you to obtain registration to nominations for temporary or permanent visas.

International recruitment by the Western NSW Local Health District has made a key contribution to the delivery of high quality clinical services, especially in areas where recruitment is historically very difficult. This has enabled us to provide continuity in the delivery of high standards of patient care, maintain safe levels of care, retain local staff, and have a diverse workforce more reflective of the cultural background of the patients seeking care.
