Australia : CASEY and MONASH hospitals secure $730,000 influx.

To boost services, Casey and Monash hospitals have secured a $730,000 influx.

The Australia-based hospitals have received two federal grants, one to raise physiotherapy in the emergency departments at Casey and Dandenong and another to train nurse endoscopists at Dandenong Hospital and Monash Medical Centre.

Southern Health s general manager of allied health Donna Markham said: "These roles will enhance our workforce productivity and enhance recruitment and retention by expanding the scope of these physiotherapy roles and uptake of established health professional roles.

Markham added: "These roles in our emergency departments are critical in providing timely patient-centred care, form an essential part of the emergency department team, assist in meeting the growing demands of our community, and ensuring we utilise our highly skilled workforce to their maximum abilities."

Bruce federal Labor MP Alan Griffin and Isaacs federal Labor MP Mark Dreyfus declared the funding, which is part of an $11 million allotment for 29 projects throughout the country.
