“The study-leave and bursaries provided opportunities that otherwise would not be available to me, help keep me motivated, improve my skill sets, assist in retaining me as a professional working in this field and location,” said Wendy.  

The Care Partnership – Diabetes (CP-D) program offers the Western T2 Diabetes Scholarship to support the health workforce caring for people living with T2 Diabetes across Western and Far West NSW. 

To be eligible, you must be: 

  • a doctor, nurse, allied health practitioner, dentist or, Aboriginal health practitioner or worker 

  • wanting to enhance the care they provide for people living with type 2 diabetes  

  • working in a Western or Far West NSW location, including in a Local Health District setting.  

The scholarships and bursaries are valued at up to $10,000 per year and can assist with course fees and associated travel and accommodation expenses. Employers may receive funding support to cover the cost of backfilling to release an applicant for study leave to undertake courses that address priority skill needs. 

CP-D is supported by a partnership between Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD), the Far West Local Health District (FWLHD), Western NSW Primary Health Network (WNSW PHN) and Rural Doctors Network (RDN). The Western T2 Diabetes Scholarship is jointly funded by the NSW Ministry of Health’s Collaborative Commissioning program and the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care’s Health Workforce Scholarship Program that is administered by RDN in NSW.
