New Nurses Welcomed to St George Hospital

Mr Mark Coure today welcomed more than 45 new nurses who will commence work at St George Hospital this year.

Mr Coure said the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has made a record investment in the recruitment of nurses and midwives.

“More than 5,300 nurses and midwives have joined the health system since we came to office, taking the state’s nursing and midwifery workforce to more than 49, 000,” Mr Coure said.

“Whether it’s investing in new hospitals, enhancing existing facilities or recruiting more nurses and midwives, this government is delivering improved health services for the people of this state.

“I’m thrilled to welcome all of the new nurses and am delighted that they have decided to spend their graduate year learning and developing their skills at St George Hospital”.

“I wish the new nurses beginning work this year all the very best. They are learning from the best and are in very capable hands,” Mr Coure said.
