Specialty trainee doctors criticise new rosters

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 30 August 2018

Specialty Trainees of New Zealand has set up as an alternative to the Resident Doctors' Association because of a so-called safer hours agreement negotiated between the RDA and DHBs last year. The new union's spokesperson, Dr Heath Lash, talks to Susie Ferguson.
