NNSWLHD Community Health Professionals Uniform Instruction

Following concerns raised by members, the HSU has contacted NNSWLHD regarding an instruction for community health professionals to commence wearing uniforms. The union has outlined concerns around WHS and patient care, as well as potential barriers in the care of vulnerable clients. 

You can read management’s response to our concerns at this link.

In their letter, management have indicated that uniform requirements had previously been negotiated. This was close to a decade ago.

We need to hear from you, particularly if you are working in the community setting and working with vulnerable patients and their families. What are your concerns about uniforms? What do you think about management’s response? Please email your organiser at [E-Mail not displayed]
