NSW Health Pathology– John Hunter Microbiology Laboratory Response to COVID-19

NSWHP has proposed temporary changes to working arrangements and rostering practices in the Microbiology Laboratory of John Hunter Laboratory, in response to the increased COVID-19 testing.

You can view the correspondence communicating this change here.

The current rostering in this department is 06:30 to 23:00, however the proposed change will roster one staff member between 23:00 and 07:30, which will mean that there is increased coverage.

The period of the change is proposed to commence as from 10 January 2022, and this would be for a temporary period of up to one week ending on 15 January 2022.

All staff will be advised that the proposal at first instance would be on a voluntary basis. Staff have requested that the notice period is waived.  If you have any concerns or require any further clarification, please contact your HSU Organiser Gwenny Asimus via [E-Mail not displayed]
