The fight for patient ratios and safety continues

As nurses and midwives around the country fight for better staff-to-patient ratios the union decided to strike again on Wednesday.

It was pleasing to see you print the concerns of Graham Mathews regarding the quick sale of the Roundhouse site.

I raised similar concerns two weeks ago but it did not make it to print.

With all the speculation and supposed interest and demand for the  home sites, can council explain explicitly and without weasel words, why the development was not advertised nationally and put to auction and so maximise benefit for the community which has has a valuable community asset arguably stolen from them and sold off for a bargain.

The whole process beggars belief and rubs salt into the wound of the community, after years of dispute and reasonable negotiation.

Something does’t feel right about all this and it appears that the shysters have got away with it again.
