Allied health

Our team works with adults and children to support their diagnosis, recovery and independent well-being. We use individual care plans, patient-centred rehabilitation, self-management of chronic disease and evidence-based interventions to support a person’s medical care.

We have opportunities in dietetics, medical imaging, occupational therapy, ophthalmology, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology, speech pathology and social work.

Allied Health Professionals within Gold Coast Health have access to an additional Professional Capability Framework for Allied Health which complements the organisation-wide Core Capability Framework. The Professional Capability Framework details the professional capabilities for Allied Health positions, providing a common language and set of expectations across the professions, and acting as a developmental tool to support and inform discussions about professional skill development and career progression within Gold Coast Health.
