Lakes DHB strike ad­vice

Rotorua Daily Post - - Local News -

Make sure you’re up to date with pre­scrip­tions. Stone said “our health sec­tor, as a whole, works hard and the pres­sure we are all work­ing un­der is not al­ways vis­i­ble”.

“In­dus­trial ac­tion is part of the nor­mal course of a very large work­force . . . ev­ery­body work­ing in the health sys­tem wants the ab­so­lute best for their pa­tients but some­times to get that you have to do what’s best for the work­force.”

The RDA said DHBs were try­ing to re­verse im­proved con­di­tions se­cured af­ter the 2016 strikes. DHBs “strongly dis­pute” this. Last week the DHBs’ spokesman Dr Pe­ter Bram­ley said they had tried to ne­go­ti­ate an agree­ment where clin­i­cians and hos­pi­tal man­agers could work with their ju­nior doc­tors to make ros­ter­ing de­ci­sions, “rather than the union”.
