Staffing win for Wallaroo Hospital

Categories: Public Sector News

Following concerns raised by Emergency Department (ED) members at Wallaroo Hospital, ANMF (SA Branch) has successfully overturned a proposal to halve morning and afternoon staffing over the busy summer holiday period.

Such concerns were heightened by the weekend closure of the area’s GP clinic, which has driven increased demand for the hospital’s emergency department.

After ANMF (SA Branch) officers met with SA Health representatives and management of Wallaroo Hospital, the proposal to reduce the respective ED staffing arrangement from 2-2-1 to 1-1-1 for morning, afternoon and night shifts was shelved.

SA Health has written to confirm the current staffing arrangement will remain in place until 1 February 2019.
