The Radiation Therapy career structure at Alfred Health is under attack. There are plans to dismantle the career structure of Radiation Therapists by introducing Operations Managers in place of highly skilled and expert (Grade 6) Radiation Therapists.
This, however, isn’t just about Radiation Therapists at Alfred. This is about all Radiation Therapists – whether in the public or private sector. If Alfred were to be successful in dismantling the career structure of their Radiation Therapists, it could very well spark similar actions against the profession in healthcare providers across the state.
To replace highly skilled and expert Radiation Therapists with generic managers is an insult.
This is why VAHPA is fighting this every step of the way, and we encourage all Radiation Therapists to take a stand and get involved in this campaign.
