Privatisation Campaign




On Thursday, one of our members, Dr Francoise Joseph, alongside nurses and allied health workers from ISLHD met with the new Minister for Health, the Hon. Brad Hazzard MP and Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward, to discuss the plan to privatise Shellharbour Hospital.

We are happy to note that the meeting was very productive, but our Doctors have made it clear that they are committed to fighting the privatisation of our hospitals to protect the safe patient care standards that exist in our public health system.

Next week on Wednesday 22 February, we have a delegation of Doctors heading up to meet Brad Hazzard to discuss in greater detail the qualitative and quantitative evidence against privatising Shellharbour Hospital. They will speak directly about the impacts to patient care should the proposal go ahead.

If you would like to get involved in a similar way, please feel free to contact Industrial Officer Damien Lee via, or through the ASMOF Office on 9212 6900.
