More than 76% of respondents said they have considered resigning from their position as a doctor in the NSW Health Service.
One member said:
"Staff specialists in NSW Health are amongst the lowest paid staff specialists in the country, combined with the highest housing costs in Sydney - as compared to any other capital city in the country. If NSW Health has to attract and retain talented senior medical staff, the renumerations to staff specialists must improve."
"Understaffed for last 20 years. No increase in staff numbers despite a dramatic increase in workload"
ASMOF appreciates all the members who have provided feedback and shared their insights into medicine in NSW public hospitals and we urge doctors to participate in our campaign to reform the employment awards for doctors in the NSW Health Service.
