New Zealand, similar to many other countries experiences an imbalance of health service demand, workforce supply and affordability. The current medical workforce is aging, in 2012 the average age of a General Practice clinician was 50. As models of care move out of hospitals and into the community demand for GPs and other primary health care staff continues to increase. This study proposes to utilise the framework developed by Tomblin-Murphy et al as a guide to a new approach to workforce planning in New Zealand. This pilot project will take place in the Otara/Mangere Locality of Counties Manukau Health (CM Health), one of the New Zealand’s 20 District Health Boards (DHB).
