Patient care no longer appears to be the prime consideration in the running of South Australia’s public hospital system. Warren Jones explains how that happened and how it can be fixed.
In a few weeks, the State Government will begin dismantling services at Modbury Hospital – a process that will have dangerous ramifications for patients, argues Warren Jones.
The Government’s Transforming Health process has ignored the teaching, training and research which will be disrupted, eroded or lost when the Repat closes, writes Professor Warren Jones.
It is now eight months since the release of the Transforming Health (TH) proposals for a massive overhaul of our health system. Since then, we have been given little information about how these proposed changes, particularly, the closure of the Repat, will be accomplished and accommodated within the existing hospital system.
