MNCLHD Public Health Unit Redeployment

MNCLHD management has notified the HSU that workers attached to its Public Health Unit are being temporarily redeployed as Contact Tracers, on an “as needed” as part of its COVID-19 surge planning. Management advise they will be conducting appropriate training for the workers before deployment. You can read a copy of the correspondence at this link.

HSU members are encouraged to provide feedback via email to your Organiser michael.kearns@hsu.asn.au. Any concerns will be raised with management for a response.

If you know someone who hasn’t yet joined the HSU, tell them to take the plunge today. There’s never been a more important time for health workers to stand together. New members can join at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
