About the Hospital Health Check survey
In 2020, 1332 doctors-in-training completed the Hospital Health Check survey.
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:
- Overtime & rostering
- Access to leave
- Education & training
- Morale & culture

The survey is built by members to monitor and campaign on issues important to them. If you join and take part in the doctors-in-training committee, you will have the opportunity to shape the future advocacy of AMA (NSW).
Completing the survey is just one part of the Hospital Health Check – it is an advocacy tool that encompasses campaigning and follow-up and to get the most out of it, you need to be a member.
