NZNO Industrial Services Manager, Cee Payne and president Grant Brookes are supporting members at the first ‘HealthNeedsNursing’ event of the week in Wellington.

NZNO campaign activities are planned throughout New Zealand to show the government that New Zealanders need it to prioritise rebuilding a quality public health system by investing in nursing, the largest health workforce.

NZNO members will be outside the Wellington Railway Station at 0800 Monday 9 April with placards on display and leaflets for the public.

Cee Payne explains that the activities are part of the campaign to garner public support for fully funded, quality, public health services and to secure fair recognition for the value the nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants bring to the well-being of all New Zealanders.

"The rallies are a great way for nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants to demonstrate their dissatisfaction about the underinvestment into members’ pay and safe staffing and, to bring this to the attention of the public, Grant Brookes said.
