    My wife just clocked over 30years service at Westhaven, only to be told this week that Enrolled Nurses (her grade) will be made redundant by June 2017, to top it off she just dropped off a day, so she works 3 days a week, funny how quick they organised her change of work days, quickest turn around with the paperwork by the office, Management would have known how this would have impacted her pay out, that's how you look after your staff. She has given her all to the welfare of the residents. No recognition of her 30 years. Thanks for nothing Westhaven.
