With 47,000+ members across NSW, ACT and QLD, you’re in good company!
The HSU is a specialist union that covers members working in public hospitals, ambulance, aged care, allied health, private hospitals, imaging, pathology and disability care. With 47,000 members across NSW, ACT and QLD, you’re in good company!
Did you know that one third of the NSW state budget goes into NSW Health? That’s a whopping $33bn per year.
Thousands of HSU members have told their stories about wastage in NSW Health. The HSU has now reported this in our submission to the Special Commission of Inquiry into Healthcare Funding (NSW).
A key recommendation is this: Undertake a national review of the pay and conditions in the healthcare workforce. Because we can’t have a world class healthcare system without health workers.
Bottlenecks, over-servicing, waste – these are all concerns that need to be dealt with. The Special Commission has the authority to subpoena documents and scrutinise expenditure to root out where the issues are.
And we can share our vision of what Health should look like: a well-paid workforce where community and preventative health has a strong part to play, and universal healthcare is upheld and supported.
