Dear VPNG Members,
VPNG is aware that there has been confusion and to some extent distress among you due to the ANMF VIC Branch Newsflash dated October 12th, 2021. This has prompted VPNG with support of ACORN as co-signatory to write to Lisa Fitzpatrick, the State Secretary of ANMF.
We are seeking clarification in order to better support you, our Members in understanding how these COVID 19 payments are implemented, and also take the opportunity to present to ANMF the role of perioperative nurses in caring for patients with COVID 19 to ensure that perioperative nursing roles and responsibilities are understood.
We have sought to ensure that the roles and responsibilities of Perioperative nursing staff in caring for COVID 19 and SCOVID patients is recognised and appropriately reflected in the COVID 19 allowance that is being implemented in Victoria.
Best wishes,
Elyse Coffey
VPNG President.
