Abused Wellington nurses asked to stop handing out Health Minister's contacts

From Morning Report, 7:22 am on 23 November 2022

The Nurses Union says there shouldn't be a witch hunt to find out who's been handing out Health Minister's contact details at the Wellington Hospital emergency department. 

Nurses at Wellington Hospital started handing out small laminated cards with Andrew Little's details after receiving verbal abuse from patients about long waits in the emergency department.

RNZ understands the hospital sent an email to nurses yesterday, wrongly telling them that was a breach of his privacy, and also telling them to stop.
