Head Medical Appointed as Official Supplier to New South Wales Health, Australia
After a lengthy tender and credentialing process, we are delighted to announce that Head Medical are one of only a handful of agencies to have been approved as a member of the NSW Health - Panel of Overseas Recruitment Agencies (PORA)
NSW Health is commitment to providing quality health care through the provision of highly skilled health professionals and employs an overseas recruitment strategy to help address the shortage of health professionals in the area.
PORA was implemented to provide quality assurance and standardise the process of overseas recruitment, stipulating that NSW Health facilities may only use the services of a member agency for the recruitment of overseas health professionals, including Doctors.
The award of this contract is testament not only to our quality and value driven approach but also to the long lasting relationships we provide and means that we are now able to offer candidates an even wider range of jobs, covering over 220 government hospitals within NSW Health.
More information in NSW Health and PORA can be found on their website.
