SWSLHD: COVID-19 Redeployment and Draft COVID Model of Care

The HSU has received correspondence from South Western Sydney Local Health District regarding redeployment of staff to priority roles at Liverpool, Bankstown, Campbelltown and Fairfield Hospitals. This is a temporary measure in response to the increasing number of COVID-19 hospitalisations and the impact of furloughed staff. 

You can view the correspondence at this link

This is a challenging time for all health workers, but it’s important to remember that the employer must still abide by your entitlements to excess fares and travel which can be found in your Award.

If you have been redeployed and have any questions or concerns, please contact the HSU via 1300 478 679 or email [E-Mail not displayed].

Draft COVID Model of Care

The District has also submitted its draft COVID Model of Care to the HSU for consultation. You can view a copy of the draft at this link.

We are now seeking your views so that we can advise the employer. If you have any feedback on the draft Model of Care, please email the HSU via [E-Mail not displayed] using subject line SWSLHD COVID Model of Care.
