Newsflash: Mersey Community Hospital Update

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation Tasmanian Branch (ANMF) were advised on Tuesday 31 March 2020 that as part of the Tasmanian Health Service’s (THS) response to COVID-19 the Mersey Community Hospital (MCH) Emergency Department (ED) would operate with revised, and reduced, opening hours from today, 2 April 2020. The ED will be closed between the hours of 10pm and 8am.

Any ANMF member who has further queries is encouraged to contact our Member Support Team via email membersupport@anmftas.org.au or call 1800 001 241. Due to COVID-19 the Team are now practicing social isolation and working from home, baring this in mind, email is the preferred and fastest way of contacting them.

However, if you feel that you need more support to assist you through this difficult time, please also remember as an ANMF member you have access to free confidential assistance via the Nurse and Midwives Support 24/7 helpline.
