Children's Hospital Westmead: Parking Concerns

Dear member,

Your union, the HSU, has written to the Chief Executive of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network to raise concerns about imminent changes to staff parking at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Of particular concern is the removal of parking access for staff without a parking permit.

Your union has sought an urgent meeting to discuss with the Chief Executive our concerns that this decision is likely a breach of the Government’s commitment to provide free parking to NSW Health staff.

Concerns are heightened by the fact there are few alternative parking options in the area and public transport is identified as a possible COVID-19 risk.

Your HSU representatives have also been in contact with the Ministry of Health about the issue. We will update members as further information comes to light. 

The HSU can only represent the views of members. Encourage your workmates to join online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or phone 1300 478 679.
