About us

The Connecting the Docs program was established in 2022 to address the ongoing medical workforce crisis in regional and rural Australia.

The organisation was formed in response to specific requests and feedback from local doctors who were struggling to navigate the healthcare system. The aim of the partnership is to connect doctors with key organisations, support their transition into the community, and provide skilled case management to help them navigate the healthcare system with flexibility.

Health organisations

Echuca Regional Health, East Wimmera Health, Kerang District Health, Mallee District Aboriginal Health, Mildura Base Public Hospital, Northern District Health and Swan Hill District Health are the founding members of the Connecting the Docs program.


A PARTNERSHIP program that includes Swan Hill District Health and Kerang District Health will attempt to address issues across the Loddon and Mallee regions in recruiting and retaining medical staff .
