Bad taste day leaves a good feeling

Date posted: 22 May 2014

The staff at Ngunytju Tjitji Pirni (NTP) in Kalgoorlie-Boulder have to deal with the serious side of life every day. The health service has been developed to address the 'unacceptably high' rates of Aboriginal maternal and infant death and illness in Western Australia. NTP health workers regularly visit Aboriginal women in their homes during pregnancy and after birth check babies weight, growth and immunisation.

Last week staff decided they needed some colour in their office and staged a bad tasted dress-up casual Friday to lighten the office mood. Staff wore pink wigs, fishnet stockings and other items of clothing that qualified under the bad taste theme.
