Nepean Hospital will benefit from the continued investment in local health services by the O’Farrell Government with the announcement that 66 nurses and midwives will commence work at this Western Sydney hospital in 2014.
Bart Bassett MP, Member for Londonderry, said more than 1800 nurses and midwives will commence work across 123 hospitals throughout NSW this year underlining the commitment of the O’Farrell Government to improving local health services.
“The NSW Government has made a record investment in the recruitment of nurses and midwives, which is enhancing patient care locally,” Mr Bassett said.
Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa, said the commitment to care demonstrated by the staff at Nepean Hospital is renowned and I’m pleased to see these nurses and midwives will be learning from the best.
“These fresh faces have come from near and far to train and work in our local hospital and I join the community in welcoming them to our area” Ms Davies added.
Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, said in welcoming the nurses and midwives to Nepean Hospital that the local community would be the winners.
“Western Sydney is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia and Nepean Hospital will provide and excellent training ground for the new nurses and midwives.
“Whether it’s rebuilding bricks and mortar or recruiting more nurses and midwives, this government is delivering improved health services.
“This announcement highlights the O’Farrell Government is getting on with the job of making NSW number one again after decades of Labor neglect,” Stuart Ayres added.
