Question: I work as an enrolled nurse in one of the public hospitals slated for privatisation. Can I make public comments about this government decision?
Answer: Under PD2015_049 (NSW Health Code of Conduct) you are entitled to make public comment or participate in political or industrial activities but you must not indicate or imply that the views being expressed are those of the NSW Health Service. They are your personal views or views expressed as, for example, an elected official of the Association Branch. However, when undertaking such activities care should be taken that it does not disrupt the “safe and supportive environment”
of hospital premises for patients and their families.
Please contact your local Branch or the Association to find out how you may be able to participate and contribute in the anti-privatisation campaign.
