NSW Government fails to respond in time for by-elections

The NSW Baird government cancelled legislation requiring registered nurses 24/7 for high needs residents in nursing homes despite a NSW Upper House Inquiry finding the legislation should be retained with minor amendments.

Letters were sent to the new Premier requesting  reversal of the Baird government decision for a number of reasons including the welfare of residents.

  • The first letters went to the NSW Premier on 23/2 but when voters went to the polls in three by-elections on 8/4,  there had been no response addressing the issues that were raised.
  • The Premier had ample information at hand from the comprehensive Upper House Inquiry findings that supported retaining the legislation.
