Providing employment opportunities to local people strengthens the community and provides greater sustainability of the workforce. Enabling health career pathways for local people through traineeships and upskilling existing clinical capacity provides opportunities to provide in-place services through a local workforce. With health being one of the top industries of employment in Ouyen, this is especially important for future sustainability.
