Thousands of New South Wales nurses and midwives have walked off the job today to protest issues with pay and staff-to-patient ratios.

2GB Senior Reporter Clinton Maynard told Deborah Knight, “This is one of the angriest protests I’ve seen outside of parliament house for quite some time”.

The protests are directed towards Premier Dominic Perrottet and Health Minister Brad Hazzard as the workers are “fed up” with receiving praise but no action.

“They screamed at some points.”

Ms Barford told Jim Wilson, “We are broken, we are overwhelmed”.

More strike action could be planned as that is the impression given by New South Wales Nurses and Midwives Association says, Ms Barford.

“We’re ready to do that.”
