Whakatane Hospital Senior Doctors Pleased

“Whakatane Hospital Senior Doctors Pleased With Mediation”

“Senior doctors at Whakatane Hospital are pleased with the mediation of their dispute with the Bay of Plenty District Health Board over onerous working conditions,” said Mr Ian Powell, Executive Director of the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, today.

The mediation was held in Whakatane on Friday 22 February with an agreed proposal achieved for both parties to take back for ratification. Ratification should be completed within a fortnight.

“The proposed agreement goes a long way to addressing the concerns raised by senior doctors over having to work on high frequency rosters with limited staff support.”

“Senior doctors were pleased by the constructive approach of all parties including management in making a serious effort to resolve the concerns that led to the dispute in the first place. We also appreciate the work of the mediator in helping facilitate a resolution of the dispute.”

“There is now a greater shared understanding between management and senior doctors over what the problems are and how they might be addressed,” concluded Mr Powell.
