Nurses, doctors and ambulance officers stand together in push for action on hospital overcrowding 

28 February 2019

After earlier this week holding a joint media conference addressing the contents of an open letter to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing on chronic overcrowding and ramping at Adelaide hospitals, the ANMF (SA Branch), Ambulance Employees Association (SA) and SA Salaried Medical Officers Association are continuing a united public push for action.

The three unions representing nurses, doctors and ambulance officers have again today issued an open response to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing, saying we “remain deeply concerned by the inertia of the health department” in contrast to the Minister’s stated commitments in his response letter on 26 February.

All three organisations are committed to standing together and fighting this ongoing battle on behalf of our respective exhausted workforces and in the name of patient safety.
