Nurses call on MP for support

NURSES and midwives fighting for fair pay and better staff-to-patient ratios under a proposed new ward called on Lismore MP Thomas George for support yesterday.

Lismore Base Hospital Nurses and Midwives Association branch secretary Gil Wilson said guaranteed nurse-to-patient ratios at regional hospitals would see regional patients receive similar care as city patients.

Mr Wilson said 35 extra nursing shifts at Lismore Base hospital, and more at smaller regional hospitals, was needed.

Association members will meet Mr George on June 6 to discuss the proposal before the award expires on June 30.
