The health and aged care system is made up of more than specialist doctors and nurses. It functions because of the hard work of many other health workers. The HSU covers workers in food services, cleaning, security, maintenance, administration, medical records, laboratories, allied health and professional staff, radiography, nuclear medicine, pharmacy, operating theatres, social work, psychology, dietetics, occupational therapy, interpreting, dentistry, physiotherapy, finance, IT and junior medical officers.
The HSU also covers most of the staff in aged care, private hospitals and disabilities, except for registered nurses.
If you work in these areas in NSW or the ACT, you will probably be eligible to join the HSU.
