Jeremy Hanson enjoying his waiting list triumph

By johnboy - 17 January 2011 10

Following on from this morning’s scathing enditement of Canberra’s hospital waiting list system the Liberals’ Jeremy Hanson is having about as good a day as one can have in the Legislative Assembly.

So much so that he’s put out a media release revisiting his favourite bits from the report and Health Minister Gallagher’s choicer quotes from 2010 on the issue.

From Ms Gallagher’s office there is only deathly silence.

What’s Your opinion?

Should have left the old hospital up, instead of blowing it up, and invite doctor’s and nursers from overseas, that’s the only solution, no others want to come here.

Yes, I had my only trip/stay in hospital (thus far) at the “old” Canberra Hospital. The fool that made its demolition a family outing (you know what happened) should be shot.

The whole “lack of beds” (waiting list) problem is, and always has been, more of a problem with too many administrative staff and not enough medical staff.

Who decided that nurses would be better trained if they did a 3 year course at ANU? Then turn up on a Ward and know everything but have no practical experience? Bloody pollies.

As a side issue, who decided that Teachers should do a 3 year course at Uni and end up “experienced”, instead of the 4/5 years at Teachers College which gave them “teaching skills”?

The solution is obvious: A three pronged strategy.

1) Katy and her partner need to leed another delegation to Scandinavia to see how to deal with waiting lists.

2) Katy and Jon need to build a new hospital, a smoking ceremony to open it, more brass plates with JS’s name on them and another piece of slapstick comedy like the Hume Hilton.

3) The $ 30 M waste from Action could be recovered and spent on health, i.e. we reverse the situation where a new bus driver is paid more than a new doctor.

Or perhaps we just need more MLA’s to deal with all this complex s***.

Is it too early to ask the Liberals for an indication of their policies? As much as I don’t want to rain on the bottom feeding scum sucker’s parade, I reckon we deserve a little more from an opposition party than, “I told you it wouldnt work.”
