Labor pledges a new national service to support the wellbeing of nurses and midwives13 April 2022
Opposition leader Anthony Albanese has pledged a new national service to support the wellbeing of nurses and midwives, should his party win the federal election.
Addressing Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) members and supporters at the ANMF Vic Branch in Melbourne today, Mr Albanese said he would commit $18.7 million to expand the service nationally, to ensure ‘health and wellbeing support for our frontline nursing heroes’.
The new service would provide professional, personalised early-intervention programs for exhausted nurses and midwives, helping them stay at work and preventing them from walking-away from the profession at a time of dire workforce shortages across Australia’s health system.
