Public Sector Updates – North
The ANMF has had further contact from members in regard to midwife shortages on Ward 4O/B. We have taken steps this week to re-engage with the interim Launceston General Hospital (LGH) management and provide a brief on the current Step 2 grievance and the need to follow up urgently on actions committed from the Step 2 Specialist panel meeting on Wednesday 15 June 2022. Once in receipt of an update form, management and the ANMF will provide an update to members.
The Tasmanian Health Service (THS) requested an extension to the response by date of the 5D step 1 grievance. It is understood that that the email correspondence from the ANMF to the THS went missing. The ANMF expected a response by COB Wednesday 6 July 2022. On receipt of this response, the ANMF will provide members an update.
Emergency Department (ED)
The ANMF met with ED members on Wednesday 6 July 2022 to report back on solutions achieved through the 2021/22 TIC process and to discuss current workload matters. Newsflash updates to follow shortly.
Updates correct as at 7 July 2022.
