CHALLENGES
Major challenges currently associated with the role include:

    •   The build of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital resulted in a significant increase in staff to support
        the new Health Service. Developing capability of staff across all levels is an ongoing issue for the
        organisation.
    •   As with most health services across Australia there are challenges with budget and finance. The new
        hospital attracted a large number of senior medical, nursing and allied health staff and a workforce
        planning challenge exists to balance the staff mix across the organisation.

    •   Budgetary performance improvement is a challenge with a requirement to reduce budget by 2 percent
        and increase activity by 1.5%.
    •   The organisation has a focus on consolidation and embedding of the new structure. The amount of
        change since the opening of the new hospital has meant that many staff are feeling change fatigue.
    •   Lead the development of a culture across Medical Services which fosters collaboration, evidence-
        based decision making and behaviour consistent with the values and priorities of Queensland Health
        and the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.
