Working Conditions of Doctors and Nurses in NSW Public Hospitals: Survey for Submission to the Garling Inquiry 2008
Client: AMA - Australian Medical Association/ ASMOF - Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation, NSW/ NSW Nurses Union
In 2008 a wide-ranging Commission of Inquiry (the Garling Inquiry) was undertaken into the NSW public health system. The New South Wales Australian Medical Association (AMA), the Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation (NSW) (ASMOF), and the NSW Nurses' Association, commissioned the Workplace Research Centre to examine the views and experiences of doctors and nurses in the NSW public hospital system. In particular the study collected sample survey information on the adequacy, or as it revealed, the inadequacies, of current working conditions and arrangements within the public health system.
