Commenting on the story: ‘Secret’ plans to axe doctors, nurses from Adelaide hospitals: clinicians

Where is the $57 million that SA Health has been gifted by Korda Mentha in 12 months by cutting staff and services?

Surely not the same consultants who only three years ago labelled SA Health as the most broken and dysfunctional organisation they have ever had to deal with? The money does not appear to have been put back into health services?

The upcoming planned staff cuts to doctors, nurses, midwives and ancillary staff should create just enough job insecurity to keep them quiet as well. Brilliant! – Assoc Professor John Svigos

Guess the present mob is following the previous mob’s example of incompetence in the hospital sector. 

Looks like a death wish to me. If they can’t get it sorted soon, the other mob will romp it in, probably to stuff it up more. – Mike Woenig

It seems hard to believe that there are plans afoot to make further cuts to the clinical staff in our embattled hospitals.

There are now daily reports of critically overcrowded and overstretched Emergency Departments. Health Minister Stephen Wade purports to be unaware of, or unconcerned about, the planned cutbacks. When he came into office he promised to consult with the doctors and nurses.

He now needs to emerge from behind his bureaucratic shield, fulfil this promise and speak to frontline hospital staff who are overworked, dangerously stressed and burnt out. – Warren Jones

Commenting on the story: SA solar panel recycling facility prepares for operation

This is a grand initiative. I have been concerned re the environmental impact of what to do with millions of panels once they have reached their use-by date.  

This is innovative. Wishing you great success. – Irma Denk

Interesting subject. What is the life of a solar panel? Why not place a deposit for recycling panels, similar to container deposit legislation? – Trevor Synett

Commenting on the story: ‘Disturbing’ rate of SA Aboriginal children sent to court

Raising the age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 14 would be a good start. The continuing failure to address this issue is is nothing short of a disgrace. 

State, federal and territory governments are out of kilter with international standards. There is nothing stopping governments from achieving this. – Gilbert Aitken
