Workforce Planning and Development
What sort of health workforce will Waikato need in 10 years’ time? How can we make sure the right number of people with the right skills will be working in the right places?
The aim of workforce planning is to get on the front foot – identify trends and future needs for the health workforce, and respond in a way that meets challenges and positively shapes the future.
These plans are now completed, and a summary of each project and the outcomes are listed below.
Waikato DHB Workforce Development Plan 2012/2016

Waikato DHB Workforce Development Plan 2008/2010
Waikato DHB's internal workforce plan (57 pages) focused on the workforce directly employed by the DHB (predominantly in Health Waikato, the DHB’s health service provider arm).
