Members would have recently received advice from Healthscope that it intends to commence negotiations with the ANMF to replace the Healthscope Medical Centres and ANMF, Practice Nurses Enterprise Agreement 2013 (the Agreement).
This Agreement applies to all registered and enrolled nurses in each state or territory where Healthscope own and operate a medical centre.
Members may also be aware that Healthscope has recently announced its intention to sell its medical centre business and is currently seeking expressions of interest from potential purchasers.
Given this announcement, the ANMF’s priority in the upcoming agreement negotiations will be to secure all nurses’ current terms and conditions of employment and to ensure that in the event the business does sell, that these conditions are protected and transferred to the new employer(s).
We will seek to keep you informed of developments and for further information please contact your ANMF Branch representative.
