More Warwick Hospital staff made redundant
FOUR Warwick Hospital employees have been made redundant, with a further 10 employees having their requests for a redundancy denied.
A Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service spokeswoman declined to say which positions the now redundant employees held at the hospital or when their positions were discontinued.
"The employees and management are currently in correspondence in relation to their future arrangements," she said.
"It is the health service's view that it is much more appropriate that these matters continue to be pursued sensitively and directly with employees, rather than through the media.
"There has been no reduction or change to services at Warwick Hospital and there is no expectation of change."
Executive director of Rural Health and Aged Care Michael Bishop said all 14 requests for redundancies were reviewed and assessed before a decision was made.
"The other staff members were declined as their positions are needed or their duties could not be deployed to other staff members within the hospital," he said.
"The DDHHS Board is keen to enhance health services across the DDHHS area and will grow health services where funding is available and where appropriate."
Mr Bishop said he did not expect any auxiliary services, such as laundry, to be moved off-site.
