This information includes detail on the numbers of full-time-equivalet (FTE) staff:
Between 2016–17 and 2017–18:
The staffing mix in private hospitals is different from that in public hospitals. This is because most medical services are provided by visiting medical specialists (who are not hospital employees), and the range of services provided is different.
Between 2012–13 and 2016–17, the number of FTE staff in private hospitals rose by 3.5% on average each year.
The average salary is calculated as total expenditure reported as salary for each category of staff, divided by the number of FTE staff in that category.
Between 2013–14 and 2017–18:
Changes in average salary for staff providing public hospital services between 2013–14 and 2017–18 are affected by changes in the provision of staffing information and information about recurrent expenditure on salary and wages among jurisdictions. Therefore, these data should be interpreted with caution. See Appendix A for more information.
