Government acts on our continued push for safety of remote area nurses

Categories: Public Sector News, Regional Sector News

In the three years since remote area nurse Gayle Woodford’s tragic death, the ANMF (SA Branch) has lobbied extensively for the introduction of “Gayle’s Law”, ensuring remote area nurses are not forced to attend callouts alone.

Given our efforts in pushing for this law to apply to both State operated and independent/federally funded health providers, we are pleased the State Government has decided to progress regulations in this regard.

We will continue to campaign for this law to be implemented across Australia and for further action to ensure nursing and midwifery safety in all settings.
