With the stress on Adelaide’s overloaded public hospital system showing no sign of abating, Warren Jones explains what the State Government must do to fix a system in critical condition.
The State Government needs to act quickly to fulfil its election promises to restore services to Modbury Hospital, in the interests of patient safety, writes Warren Jones.
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.
Eye health services in Adelaide are poorly planned and could be about to get even worse under the Transforming Health proposals, 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.
