A message from the SASMOA President, Dr Laura Willington: join me at the stop work meeting on 12 October to show your support in the fight to secure fair working conditions and pay in your Enterprise Agreement.
Why is this important?
Doctors have a duty to make patients their first concern.
Providing the best patient care relies on having access to specialist trained doctors. Sadly, patient care continues to be compromised by the State Government’s position on doctors’ workloads, staffing and professional development.
Amidst a backdrop of constant change, driven by politics rather than patient care, the Government now wants to cut pay and are refusing the security of a new work agreement for doctors. In the end, it’s the patients who suffer.
After you've signed the petition please also take a moment to share it with others.
