Telehealth workers have just finished a 24-hour strike, their second in a month, after union members voted on Friday to reject the latest pay offer from their employer. The telehealth service Whakarongorau which runs Healthline, GP After Hours, the Poisons Centre, mental health crisis support and other services, says it wants to pay its staff more, but needs more Government funding.
