The NSW Legislative Council is currently conducting an inquiry into health outcomes and access to health and hospital services in rural, regional, and remote New South Wales.
The Health Services Union is preparing a submission to reflect the experiences of our members who have experience in regional health in their working lives. You can read the terms of references for the inquiry in full here.
The union will concentrate on section G and H: an examination of the staffing challenges and allocations that exist in rural, regional and remote NSW hospitals and the current strategies and initiatives that NSW Health is undertaking to address them; and the current and future provision of ambulance services in rural, regional and remote NSW.
We want to hear from you if you have experiences in these areas. If you would like to contribute to our submission, please click here. All contributions will be treated in the strictest confidence.
We can only advocate on behalf of members. Talk to your colleagues and encourage them to join the HSU today online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or phone 1300 478 679.
