Port Macquarie Base Hospital Ward 1B Update

Management at Port Macquarie Base Hospital have sent correspondence to the HSU regarding the latest expansion for Ward 1B and Ward 2C. The correspondence outlines the minimal increase in staffing for the new areas. The HSU urges members across all areas to carefully read the correspondence at this link and to contact your sub branch committee with your concerns and feedback. Alternatively, you can email organiser [E-Mail not displayed] with your concerns. 

Again, management have not entered into genuine consultation with the HSU or its members around this issue. Decisions undertaken without the input of workers may affect the standard of care for patients and the safety of workers. Your involvement is greatly appreciated in holding management to account. Further action may be required from members!
