Govt Action Required On Resident Doctors Strike

Urgent Government Action Required On Resident Doctors Strike

“Urgent government action is required if the catastrophic national six day strike is not to be a complete disaster for patients,” said Mr Ian Powell, Executive Director of the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, today.

“The Employment Relations Law Reform Bill currently before Parliament includes a health sector code of good faith. This code contains requirements for organising contingency staffing arrangements for providing life-preserving patient services in the event of strikes.”

“This code of good faith is a very good document but will only take effect from 1 December. The government and other political parties need to agree to amend this date in order to make its effect immediate.”

“Parliament has to act with urgency today to ensure that a patient safety disaster might be averted,” concluded Mr Powell.
