Public Sector Updates – North West
Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) Meeting – North and North West
On 21 October 2021 the ANMF attended the Tasmanian Health Service (THS) N/NW JCC. At the meeting the ANMF raised available care parking, unauthorised access by the public through the Holman Clinic entrance to avoid COVID screening and sourcing local clothing supplies for scrub uniforms. In response the THS has advised that improved signage and a boom gate is to be installed to assist with keeping the public from parking in staff spaces. Increased signage has also been added to the Holman Clinic entrance to advise of the requirement to screen into the hospital. The THS will provide the ANMF with the procurement protocol that details the requirement for purchasing locally made goods and services for the THS. The ANMF will review this protocol and follow up further with the THS and the Government to ensure that at every opportunity local Tasmanian businesses are awarded supply contract.
Updates correct as at 28 October 2021.
