Barwon Health - Stop cutting nursing care

Geelong's nursing homes, the McKellar Centre's Wallace Lodge and Alan David Lodge, are cutting 324 nursing hours a week - almost nine nurses. This campaign is about protecting the standard of patient care at Geelong's nursing homes. It could affect you, your parents or your loved ones...

In 2006 and 2007 Barwon Health executives determined extra nursing hours were needed to provide safe patient care in these nursing homes.

Now they want to cut these hours. This will have a detrimental impact on patient care.

The number of nurses matter. More nursing hours equals better and safer care...for you, your mum, your dad, your loved ones.

Please support our campaign to stop Barwon Health cutting 324 nursing hours a week at Wallace Lodge and Alan David Lodge.
