The geographical scale of Hunter New England Health provides exciting opportunities to gain valuable and unique experiences in regional and rural areas.

Meet Physiotherapist Ivy

"What attracted me most to working rurally, is the great sense of community. It's great working at a site where there is so much variety - no day is ever the same in a Multi Purpose Service. You are very valued by both patients and staff in those smaller sites."

Meet Rural Generalist Speech Pathologist Lydia

"Hunter New England Health has given me the opportunity to work in specialties and settings that a new graduate can usually only dream of - all within a supportive team and welcoming community. If you are looking to get a wide range of clinical experiences early in your career in a beautiful part of New South Wales, Hunter New England is for you!"

Meet Physiotherapist Mitchell

Watch Allied Health - Every step of the way

Many people in the community may not know who allied health professionals are. They may know they were treated by a physio or saw the social worker. Patients may say that someone in a teal-green shirt was really kind or provided great care, and they wanted to thank them, but didn’t know who they were. One of the special aspects of allied health is that it includes disciplines that engage with a person’s life from birth right through to end of life and afterwards. Workforce Planning and Talent Development branch aimed to capture this in short film to tell this story and to help people understand more about the allied health workforce.

The short film features allied health professionals and multidisciplinary teams from NSW Health. It expresses allied health being in patients’ lives all along, at the heart of their care, every step of the way...
