Safer hospitals = safer communities


An Upper House parliamentary ‘Inquiry into Health outcomes and access to health and hospital services in rural, regional and remote NSW’ is currently underway. Now is our chance to speak out, together.

Your postcode shouldn’t define the health care your community receives. 

We need safe staffing and safe working conditions in regional and rural hospitals, including:

  • a minimum of 3 nurses on all shifts, including 2 registered nurses; and
  • staffing enhancements available when a there are no visiting medical officers available and where hospitals are reliant on virtual medical officer coverage.
