Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

Team Katy on health

By johnboy - 4 October 2012 6

Katy Gallagher is telling us how great we are again. Also how she’s planning to improve our health services (not that she’s saying there’s anything wrong with them):

If re-elected, ACT Labor will provide $10 million to boost health services at the Belconnen and Tuggeranong Community Health Centres.

We will also provide $7 million for 30 additional community nurses and plan a new city health centre.

We will continue the highly successful GP Workforce program with funding already built into the budget to continue this support.

As part of this program, ACT Labor will establish a new Primary Health Care Liaison position in the GP Liaison Unit.

And ACT Labor will open a nurse-led Walk-in-Centre in the Tuggeranong Town Centre, and another in the new Belconnen Health Centre.

What’s Your opinion?

The way to fix health is to ensure that those with private insurance claim on it.

It is completely unfair on those that refuse to buy into the private health insurance scam and therefore pay extra to Medicare, when those who’ve bought private health insurance pass all their health costs onto Medicare by dishonestly claiming to have no insurance.

This is in desperate need of fixing – it’s essentially a corrupt system.

Oh yes, it’s completely unfair that those who can afford private health insurance don’t bother to pay for it (because it’s a “scam”), and go on to be a drain on the public system.

Katy could fix the complete health system with the stroke of a pen.

Oh wait…

I think this is at least a step in the right direction. You can see that things are very slowly improving but much more is needed to bring us up to the standard you’d expect in a capital city.

Just don’t ever try and line those 30 nurses up in a row an count them.. There will probably only be 10 new nurses, with the last one in the line running to the front of the line as you walk along counting them..
