Welcome Letter

Dear Future Colleague

Thank you for your interest and consideration for these roles.

Health Support Queensland (HSQ) is looking to appoint both a Regional Director of Forensic Pathology Services, and a Senior Staff Specialist Forensic Pathologist, to support the establishment and development of a new Forensic Service Centre planned in Townsville.

Queensland Health’s Forensic and Scientific Services provides a range of public health, scientific and medical services that contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of Queenlanders, analyse evidence for police, and help Coroners with their investigations. Until recently, forensic pathology services have been based in a specialist centre located in Coopers Plains, Brisbane, with a number of forensic pathologists employed to work in regional areas including the Gold Coast University Hospital (GCUH) and Cairns Base Hospital. Planning is now underway to establish a northern forensic pathology service centre at the Townsville Hospital located in far North Queensland.

Understanding the complexity of health and being committed to delivering outstanding customer service to our patients, families and committed workforce is an imperative for the successful candidate.

Every day at HSQ we directly support frontline clinicians to deliver safe, high-quality and cost-effective care to thousands of people.  We also undertake dynamic policy leadership as part of the Department of Health, and have direct and meaningful input into the strategic direction of the Queensland Health system.

Our search for staff is aligned with our ambition as an organisation.  If we are to achieve our vision of being Australia’s best healthcare support partner, we must maintain and develop an exceptional workforce.  We must also collaborate with our partners and innovate our processes, manage our resources’ sustainability, and deliver excellent client and person-centred services.  Ultimately however, our workforce is the fundamental driver of our success.

I hope that the information contained within this microsite highlights to you the value proposition of working at HSQ.

For a confidential discussion regarding these opportunities, please contact our search and selection consultant Ben Hellstrom via phone on +61456 789 856 or via email ben.hellstrom@harveynash.com.

I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely
