Health Services Union delegate Ian Quigg said there are also a number of additional challenges they face here in the Highlands.

'' We're are required to attend jobs in the Wollondilly, Campbelltown and even Goulburn ''. Mr. Quigg said.

" Obviously they built a big new hospital down here, but we find we still have to transport alot of patients to Campbelltown and Liverpool every single day. "
