NSWHP: Proposed trial of additional shifts, Tweed Pre-Analytical

The HSU has received correspondence from NSW Health Pathology about a proposed workforce change at Tweed Heads within Pre-Analytical.

The proposal involves a trial of three additional shifts within Pre-Analytical at Tweed Heads Laboratory, adding an additional Monday to Friday Late Shift with working hours of 1230-2100 and two additional Mid Shifts on weekends with working hours of 0800-1630.

NSWHP says this trial aims to address an expected increase in workflow within Pre-Analytical at Tweed Heads Laboratory due the development of the new Tweed Valley Hospital. They have committed to recruiting and training three additional full-time Technical Assistants, which are currently advertised.
