FIRST year nurses at the Lyell McEwin Hospital (LMH) have banded together in a show of support for their Victorian colleagues as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grip the state.
YOUR first year in a new job often comes with a litany of challenges, but for graduate nurses on the COVID-19 pandemic’s front lines, 2020 has thrown up its own set of speedbumps.
MORE than 70 Gawler Health Service nurses and midwives have protested outside the hospital and along Lyndoch Road as part of a state-wide series of industrial actions taken by their union.
INDUSTRIAL action could affect Gawler Hospital from as early as next week, with the state’s nurses’ union doubling down on demands for better working conditions.
NURSES at the Gawler hospital could take industrial action if pay and working condition negotiations between the State Government and the nurses’ union continue to stall.
