About the Hospital Health Check survey

In 2017, 1107 doctors-in-training were surveyed, which accounts for approximately 20% of all doctors-in-training working in NSW.

Because many doctors-in-training rotate through multiple hospitals and health services, all participants were asked to answer questions based on one hospital in which they had worked the most in the last 12 months.

The data gathered from the survey was used to provide hospitals with grades in five different domains and to calculate and overall rating for each facility. The five domains measured are:

  1. Overtime & rostering
  2. Access to leave
  3. Wellbeing
  4. Education & training
  5. Morale & culture

Where necessary, hospitals were grouped with others in the same Local Health District to allow for minimal sample sizes (n≥20 for larger metropolitan, n≥10 for smaller regional or rural), to enhance result reliability and protect participant confidentiality.
