Employee Information


NSW Health has a state-wide uniform policy to provide NSW Health employees with practical and functional uniforms in a variety of styles, with designated colours for each workstream to help patients easily identify employees irrespective of facility or Local Health District (LHD).

The online ordering system (the Total Apparel Management System or TAMS) is linked to payroll data. Generally, for new employees to NSW Health access to TAMS will occur the day proceeding your first day.


StaffLink facilitates the delivery of a streamlined and standardised human resource and payroll function for NSW Health staff.

You can manage your personal and pay information through Employee Self Service (ESS) – the secure online self-service function in StaffLink.

To learn more about StaffLink and view up to date information and forms, please view the information on the StaffLink log in page and follow the links to further information. 


HealthRoster is the statewide rostering system for NSW Health. It replaces existing electronic and paper-based systems with a statewide supported system that interfaces with StaffLink for all staffing groups.

You can access HealthRoster via your local intranet once you have been advised that HealthRoster is live for you by your local HealthRoster Project Team. You can then login to HealthRoster using your eight digit StaffLink number and password.

Employee Online (EOL) is the online self service function of HealthRoster, giving you the ability to monitor your roster. Secure access to EOL will be available from any device with internet connection and a compatible browser, or via internal intranet links.
