The DHBs and Unions have agreed to the following principles regarding any change to members workplace/type of work.
This advice is accurate as at 31 March 2020 at 1600HRS.
It has been developed by 20 DHBs in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and with inputs from major unions to provide clarity for DHB employees on issues such as travel, leave, occupational health and safety, and wellbeing. It has been informed by a range of clinical experts and approved by 20 DHBs for implementation.
It may change rapidly given the nature of the health system response to COVID-19.
