Nurses at Latrobe and Launceston will consider industrial action next week, as anger grows over staff shortages in Tasmania's public hospitals. The move follows a series of work bans at the North West Regional Hospital in Burnie.
From today, around 30 nurses working in operating suites there will implement work bans in protest over staff shortages.
Nursing Federation spokeswoman Neroli Ellis says there is growing concern across Tasmania over the lack of staff in public hospitals, and people need to get involved.
If it weren't so darned cold in Tassie I would consider getting a job there myself!
