What doctors at this hospital are saying

What do you value most about your hospital?

If you could change three things at your hospital what would they be?

“Administration and rostering. Inadequate staffing. Access to rotations in areas of interest.”

“More offices for doctors to do administrative work, more rest areas/common rooms for doctors, more timely and organised rostering.”
