APA (NSW) Member Update – Paramedicine Board of Australia

APA (NSW) Member Update

Paramedicine Board of Australia

Wednesday 3 May 2017

Dear Member,

With the wheels in motion for paramedic registration to occur in late 2018, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) has issued a call for nominations and expressions of interest for the inaugural Paramedicine Board of Australia.

This call is made with the understanding that the Paramedicine Board of Australia will not be established until the required changes are made to the legislation. 

There is one position for a paramedic from NSW as part of the 9 person board, which will consist of 5 other paramedics and 3 community members. 

Anyone interested should review additional information on the AHPRA website (http://www.ahpra.gov.au/News/2017-04-28-call-for-applications-para.aspx) as soon as possible. Applications are due to close at 17:00 Monday 29 May 2017.

Regards, 

APA (NSW) Executive

Still No Uniform Solutions from NSW Ambulance

NSW Ambulance (NSWA) continues to bury their head in the sand when it comes to our uniform.
 
The current polyester uniform, including the short-sleeved shirt, has been causing work health and safety concerns for several members in hot and/or humid climates. This is unacceptable.


Paramedics take action against public sector wage cut

Today the Australian Paramedics Association (NSW) are commencing industrial action to stand against the announced wage cut by the Premier. For months, Paramedics and other essential workers put our lives and the lives of our families at risk to look after the people of New South Wales during the COVIID-19 Pandemic.


APA (NSW) appalled by NSW Premier plan to freeze our wages

The NSW Premier’s announcement to freeze the pay of public sector workers for 12 months is disgraceful. Paramedics and our frontline colleagues have been used, yet again, as scapegoats for this Government. We are praised as heroes for our hard work, and in the same breath served a pay cut that will ultimately send our wages backwards.
