In Australia, the Department of Health has announced a new policy for identifying new doctors, pharmacists and health care workers to help them become more recognisable.
The new guidelines will see the names of doctors, pharmacy employees and health-care workers changed to reflect the department’s ‘new’ logo.
The changes will also apply to all new employers and to existing ones.
In Australia: Health Minister Peter Dutton says the department has identified a ‘new logo for all new businesses and organisations that apply for a licence’.
This new logo will be used for all existing businesses and entities and will be the first time this has been used in the country’s health system.
“There is a significant gap between the current logo and the current reality and I believe it is important that the new logo is used to highlight the department as an employer, as an organisation, as a member of a health group and to be an advocate for the profession,” he said.
“The new logo represents a renewed and ambitious vision for the health system that includes making it a world-leading provider of healthcare and supporting its people to thrive and succeed.”
We are not changing the logo to reflect that, we are creating a new brand to make it more recognisably Australian.
The logo is now ‘Australian’, and the new brand will be appropriately recognisable to all Australian citizens.
“This change will be seen by many as a positive step in the right direction and it will also be seen as a way of making it clear that the department is a leader in the health sector and in delivering quality health care for Australians.” “
There has been a lot of discussion about the way we were referred to by the old logo, but I want to be clear: it is not changing,” he wrote.
“This change will be seen by many as a positive step in the right direction and it will also be seen as a way of making it clear that the department is a leader in the health sector and in delivering quality health care for Australians.”
‘A good start’ The move follows similar moves in Australia by the US, Canada and New Zealand.
The Department of Public Health in the US announced a similar branding change in 2016.
In New Zealand, the department also announced a logo change last year.
In the UK, the Health and Social Care Information Centre announced last year that the Department for Health and Carers (DHCA) would no longer be used.
“DHCA has been working hard to ensure that we are more recognising our role in the healthcare system, as well as making sure that the logo reflects that,” DHCA chief executive Andrew Lloyd-Jones said.
The move has also been welcomed by health professionals.
“I think it is a good start,” Dr Michael Whelan, an Australian health practitioner, told the ABC.
“We’ve seen the US changes in branding for years now.
We’ve seen Canada do it, we’ve seen New Zealand do it.
But this is the first step to really changing that,” he told ABC News Breakfast.
As the health care industry continues to evolve, we need to make sure that we continue to have a role in our national health system.”
