About the Hospital Health Check survey

In 2018, 1351 doctors-in-training were surveyed, which accounts for more than 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 an 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.

Detailed Information For NSW Overall

The graphs below are divided into demographic information and the five domains measured in the Hospital Health Check.

To navigate around each section, please either use the arrow buttons at the centre, below each graph, or click on the numbers between the arrows to bring up a menu you can use to go to a graph of your choice.

At the NSW level, most of the domain questions can be filtered by the gender of the respondents. Clicking on the word “female” or “male” in the top right corner will show you how women and men, respectively, answered the question you are viewing. This feature is disabled when viewing an individual hospital’s results to preserve the anonymity of survey respondents.

Clicking on the white space around a graph will cause the focus icon () to be shown. Clicking on the focus icon will enlarge the view of the graph.

This can be used in conjunction with the show at full screen icon at the bottom right of each graph to get a better full screen display of graphs that have multiple answers.

You can also use the share icon (to the immediate left of the view at full screen icon) to share the results for your hospital on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or via email.

These graphs are best viewed in Firefox on a desktop computer.
