The second national Nurses Day of Action will take place this Wednesday 31 August outside 17 DHB’s up and down the country.
The event is being organised by Nurses For Freedom NZ (NFFNZ). The focus of it is to protest the continuation of vaccine mandates against health staff and to highlight the current crisis in our health care system, a crisis which could be managed easier by the removal of the mandates.
‘We have received lots of emails offering practical and financial support for our action and feel very overwhelmed; a huge thank you to everyone who has contacted us!,’ a statement from NFFNZ read.
