THE DEPARTMENT of Health has extended its deadline for views on cost-cutting proposals that threaten the provision of specialist catheter equipment to 28 December.
NT is calling on nurses to sign a petition against the plans that would mean an end to central government funding for specialist catheters. NT has also joined forces with the Association for Continence Advice to raise awareness of this issue.
