ANMF (Vic Branch) operations and COVID-19

ANMF members are one of the most important workforces as the country prepares for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nurses, midwives and personal care workers are on the front line of caring for the community. Supporting you, your health and your wellbeing is critical for the ANMF.

ANMF is undertaking preparations to ensure we can continue to provide a seamless service and support to members during this challenging time. We also want to ensure we can continue to advise, support and represent members for non-COVID-19-related issues. This means ANMF is changing the way it operates to protect our staff, members and the public.

From Monday 23 March, the following changes will take effect as part of our preparation for staff to work remotely, if and when required, or in the event they become unwell and are unable to work:

  1. Members will no longer be able to call the Member Assistance information phone line. Members must make all Member Assistance inquiries via our online form. These changes will enable ANMF to triage inquiries, and increase Member Assistance resources so we can respond promptly.
  2. Members will no longer be able to call our Membership Department and all membership inquiries must be via records@
  3. Members who need to speak with a staff member, other than those calls in 1 and 2 above, will still be able to contact the Branch.
  4. All member meetings, workplace visits, orientations and roadshows are cancelled.
  5. Members are strongly encouraged not to visit the Branch office to meet with staff.
  6. ANMF has also cancelled conferences, events and Education Centre courses (including the upcoming AOD workshops) scheduled up to 30 June.

The Branch continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the advice of Victoria’s Chief Health Officer. We are undertaking preparations to ensure we can continue to provide member services. Please visit for important information.
