Tesch meets nurses and health workers
Labor candidate for Gosford, Ms Liesl Tesch, met with nurses and allied health workers in Woy Woy on Tuesday, March 14, to discuss their concerns with the State Government's privatisation agenda.
The meeting, which included Deputy Opposition Leader, Mr Michael Daley, followed an announcement that Labor would deliver a dedicated nurse walk-in centre for Gosford,
Ms Tesch said: "It's clear from what we've heard here today that hospital and health staff are being put under increased stress from the Liberal Government's lack of support for the sector," Mr Daley said.
"Waiting times and the experiences of these staff are the frontline effects of the Liberals mismanagement of our health system," he said.
Ms Tesch said: "Our nurses, allied health workers and clinicians do a fantastic job for our community and are being let down by a government who just don't seem to care.
"The flow on effects of the Liberals' privatisations are clear: We will see less staff, less resources and worse outcomes for patients," she said.
