I have submitted an extenuating circumstances application. If successful, will my chances of receiving an offer for my 1st network preference increase?
Approval of extenuating circumstances for an applicant does not guarantee allocation to a position above other applicants in the same priority category. Approval may result in a reduced set of network preferences to be considered by the algorithm along with all other applicants. It does not guarantee allocation to a desired network or higher preference than would otherwise have been allocated.
It is possible that an applicant in one of the lower categories in the NSW Health Priority List may not receive a position offer in NSW, and if an offer is received, they may not receive an equivalent or higher preference than would otherwise have been allocated.
