Commenting on the story: SA ‘well-placed’ to cope with large COVID outbreak despite ramping: Ambo boss

Outgoing SAAS CEO David Place must be describing a parallel universe from that inhabited by we mere mortals. There is no way we could cope with a significant COVID outbreak.

Ambulance ramping is a symptom of serious hospital bed shortages. Indeed the system has lost 262 beds in the four years to 2000. Sick COVID patients need to be in hospital, in a bed, not in one of the Government’s fabled but mysterious ‘treatment spaces’.

In addition, the fall-back COVID hospitalisation previously offered by mothballed capacity at the previous Wakefield St Hospital has now disappeared back into the corporate development world.

Unrealistic comments on our struggling hospital system are unhelpful at least, and dangerous at worst. We need more hospital beds. – Warren Jones

Commenting on the story: New leader appointed to drive Aboriginal Cultures Centre vision

Brilliant choice! I had the privilege of working with Lee Ann many years ago and was so impressed by her integrity, creativity and vision as well as her practical can-do attitude. She got things done, motivated her colleagues and by example developed cultural awareness and sensitivity. – Angela Burford

This is a great appointment of an outstanding leader with excellent arts experience to boot. – Ruth Rentschler

Commenting on the story: Touch of the Fumbles: The Dark Side Rises

As an avid reader of Touch of the Fumbles I always look forward to the article and, I must admit, this week has been one of my favourite articles and I can only hope Tom’s predictions for Port are correct.

From the Dark Side – join us Tom! – Emma Lendrum
