Commentary on the story: “Secret” plans to kill doctors, nurses from Adelaide hospitals: clinicians
Where is the $ 57 million that Korda Mentha SA gave Health in 12 months by cutting staff and services?
Surely not the same consultants who only three years ago described SA Health as the most broken and dysfunctional organization they have ever dealt with? The money doesn’t seem to have been put back into healthcare?
The upcoming planned downsizing of doctors, nurses, midwives and support staff should create just enough job insecurity to keep them calm as well. Brilliant! – – Assoc Professor John Svigos
Presumably, the current mob follows the example of the previous mob’s incompetence in the hospital sector.
Looks like a death wish to me. If they can’t sort it out soon, the other mob will romp around, likely to stuff it more. – Mike Woenig
It seems hard to believe that plans for further clinical staff cuts are underway in our contested hospitals.
There are now daily reports of critically overcrowded and congested emergency rooms. Health Secretary Stephen Wade pretends not to know or worry about the planned cuts. When he came into office, he promised to consult with the doctors and nurses.
He must now step out from behind his bureaucratic shield, fulfill that promise, and speak to frontline hospital staff who are overworked, dangerously stressed and burned out. – Warren Jones

Commentary on the story: The recycling plant for SA solar modules is preparing for operation
This is a great initiative. I was concerned about the environmental impact of millions of panels once they reached their expiration date.
That’s innovative. I wish you much success. – Irma think
Interesting topic. W.What is the life of a solar panel? Why not leave a deposit for recycling panels, similar to the container depot legislation? – Trevor Synett
Commentary on the story: “Disruptive” rate of SA Aboriginal children brought to justice
Raising the age of criminal liability from 10 to 14 would be a good start. The continued failure to address this issue is a shame.
State, state, and territory governments disagree with international standards. Nothing prevents governments from doing this. – Gilbert Aitken
