The Grapevine: How Will Victoria’s Easing Of Restrictions Affect Healthcare Workers?

The Grapevine checks in with the health workforce to see what the implications of Victoria's easing of restrictions will be for hospitals and healthcare workers. 

Emergency specialist and former AMA vice-president Dr Stephen Parnis chats to Dylan and Kulja about the realities of working on the frontline and how the last 18 months of COVID-19 response have affected his colleagues. From the positive (an increased focus on the welfare of healthcare workers) to the negative (being harassed by anti-vaxxers outside their workplaces), Dr Parnis paints an honest and unflinching picture of the current realities of working in a hospital.
