my experience at the department of health is very good
The permanent staff are willing to assist with training in most areas that I worked. I was treated fairly and enjoyed working short term with this department.

One of the best government sites to work for,
The team at NICNAS consists of 100+ PhD Chemistry Scientists. Great team to work with. Very low level of work politics.

Comfortable and relaxed work environment. Good reward and recognition culture.

Will never work for Department of Health again
Poor management, no job guidelines, no training of management on employee relations and health and safety. Poor records training and did not meet Records Act requirements.
Had a bad experience with a newly trained nurse interfering with office procedure.

There is no such thing as a typical day.

Gaining an understanding of Facilities Management at a large Tertiary Hospital has been enjoyable.


The hardest part of the job is the constant bureaucracy.

Where it all happens for Australian Government, Health Policy and Compliance
Every day I focus on our statutory function of devising and implementing measures to prevent or detect contraventions of Part VII of the National Health Act or the Pharmaceutical Benefits Regulations. This includes conducting Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) compliance activities AND adding value to the areas of PBS education, advice, risk identification, strategy planning, claims analysis, audit implementation and major PBS investigations.

Totally enjoyed all aspects of my job
Organising high volumes of paperwork and entering information into a database. I learned to be appreciated for the work I was performing. Management was kind and professional. Co-workers were easy going and efficient. Hardest part of my job was leaving. Most enjoyable part of my job was being at work with great colleagues

Varied and no one day is the same
The day can vary based on if you are about to work in the remote community. If that is the case time spent getting resources ready, contacting communities, writing reports, attending meetings.
May attend the hospital as one of your clients might be in hospital to check on them and see how they are progressing.
