Commenting on the story: Mass coronavirus vaccination hubs planned for SA

“… 70 very happy general practices (across Adelaide) open and providing vaccinations as we’re speaking”.

My question is how does anyone in the general public find a list of these 70 general practices providing vaccinations?

I am eligible under 1b but do not know how to get my name on a list at one of these clinics. – Barbara Hay

The vaccine roll out is a joke. Cannot book online, so ring the clinic; it’s either no answer and wait in queue for over an hour, or engaged, or after an hour’s wait you get to speak to a receptionist who advises “not taking booking, follow DHS website, we’ve no vaccine”.

I did follow the DHS website so obviously this clinic is feeling the pressure of a failed system, by the tone of the person answering the phone. In the UK, millions people receive a text message advising date and time to attend an appointment for their COVID vax. Here in Australia, millions of people less than UK, we have to phone a clinic and sit on your phone for over an hour to be told “no vaccine”! Come on Australia, get your act together. Not good enough. Meg Lindley

Commenting on the story: Call to delay ‘deeply concerning’ SA adoption reform

The changes suggested in this Bill seems like a piece of rushed legislation. The Government should surely be consulting with all groups who are engaged in adoption and foster care and especially listening to the lived experience of those who have been adopted. – Geraldine Gillen

Commenting on the article: Why having an Environment, Social and Governance Policy matters in 2021

Measuring impact and benefits is not something that many companies or organisations do very well at all. 

It is hard enough to get economic metrics recorded, measured and monitored, never mind being able to use the information to make strategic decisions based on real time data from these metrics. There are companies who make huge sums of money writing reports on the impacts of programs, retrospectively based on a select number of inputs, usually the ones that show the company in its best light, rather than having it as a real time, dynamic portfolio wide process.

The ESG models are huge, unwieldy and designed to put companies off doing it themselves, being restricted to use by the experts, and companies paying royally for the privilege of doing so. The art of providing the customer with what they want to see, and not what they should be seeing and being able to make real-time decisions for the benefit of their stakeholders and staff. – Graeme Crook
