Saturday, November 28, 2009
The Community walkers have begun their 53km two day walk from the Blue Mountains Hospital in Katoomba to Nepean Hosital in Penrith. In attendance were local ALP member Phil Koperberg, and Opposition State Health Spokesperson, Jillian Skinner.
The staff from the Hospital involved in the "Who Will Speak For Us" Blog would like to say
SOMETIMES THERE'S NO OTHER OPTION EXCEPT TO BE BRAVE.

This blog is from the inside of Katoomba Hospital. It has to be anonymous because all staff of Sydney West Area Health Service are required to not speak to the media as part of their employment contract. The trouble is, where is the transparency if serious issues cannot scrutinized? Where is the accountability of the system if staff are gagged? This blog will have a limited life, either because the problems it seeks to address are addressed or because the system which has gagged staff of Sydney West Area Health will succeed in gagging them. The outcome, ultimately, is up to all of us. CONTACT US
