As part of NSLHD’s response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, dedicated COVID-19 Care teams have been deployed to work across Royal North Shore, Hornsby, Ryde and Mona Vale hospitals to support staff. The teams will offer workforce support and advice to all staff and managers, as well as check in on staff members’ wellbeing. The teams will also be able to help source relevant information for staff, feedback any concerns to the district executive and follow up on any questions they can’t immediately answer.
