Changes to Clinical Information Department, Tamworth Hospital

Dear Member,

Hunter New England Local Health District (HNELHD) have advised the HSU about proposed changes in the Clinical Information Department (CID) at Tamworth Hospital.

Following the notification sent out in November 2021 regarding the implementation of Digital Medical Records (DMR) at Tamworth Hospital, HNELHD is now planning to introduce new staffing hours from June 1, 2024.

The proposal put forth by HNELHD is to move to a five day, Monday to Friday, operation in lieu of having the department staffed until 7pm during the week and two six hour shifts on the weekend.
