Tweed Hospital has welcomed the addition of 27 new graduate nurses this month.
‘Four new mental health and one midwife nurse [have] started and a further 22 graduates will begin work as nurses at the Tweed Hospital in a fortnight,’ said Tweed state MP Geoff Provest.
‘This, along with the eleven new doctors who have just begun their internships, represents a great youthful boost to medical services at the Tweed Hospital, which is now arguably the north coast’s busiest and most important.
‘It will also provide relief for the excellent existing medical staff who have been stretched by increasing demand.’
‘The new nurses are among 2,000 that will start work in NSW hospitals this year, bringing the total number of extra nurses since the change of government to more than 3,000.’
