    An Omicron outbreak could further impact the already stretched healthcare workforce


    The Medical and Salaried Medical Specialists associations are asking the Government to declare a workforce emergency.

    She says contingency planning will be left to the people who decide what's delivered and whether particular health services have to be prioritised.
