HSB Rejects Gweru Nurses’ Flexi-hours Bid

The Health Services Board (HSB) has been criticised for blocking nurses at the Midlands Provincial Hospital from implementing the Flexi-hour working schedule at the institution.

Zimbabwe Professional Nurses’ Union (ZPNU) president Robert Chiduku on Wednesday told Southern Eye that nurses at the Gweru-based hospital are disheartened by HSB’s decision. He said:

What is disappointing is that the HSB is located at Parirenyatwa Hospital where nurses are working for two days, but they have denied us such an arrangement, saying it is illegal.

As we speak, nurses are now going out of their way to find means of working for more than two days a week. Their salaries do not permit them to report for work for more than two days; that is why we had declared incapacitation.

Chiduku said the decision was discriminatory since nurses at Sally Mugabe Hospital (formerly Harare Central Hospital) and Parirenyatwa Hospital were working for two days per week.
