The State Government’s move to outsource some elective surgery borders on a stunt to divert attention from ongoing problems in the public hospital system, writes Warren Jones.
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.
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.
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.
