Having Chroinic Back pain ,I’ve visited Drs ,Heath professional patients .& families .Its on the brink of collapse & us the Communities are suffering big time .Hospital staff talks staff shortages ,overworked & very demanding .We as Emergancy users can’t hardly to get into hospital ,unless it’s critical .Living in a country town it takes 4 weeks to get a appointment ,then rushed thru like cattle .1Dr has 3 appointments on same time as myself .City patients getting sent to our rural Hospitals ,so us here can’t access a bed overnite for observation ,we have to say in Emergancy till late at nite then get send home ,only can stay if critical .So unfair ,Goverment need to stop cutting basic services to our Health system ,

  • Very crazy. Things need to change


  • Also, patients do get sent both ways as professionals search for available beds.


  • The same thing does occur in cities too – there is a shortage of beds and staff are overworked. Not sure of the solution – more funding and more hospitals? Which may mean more taxes? It is an age old question and there will be more demands as our population ages.


  • yep, it is a bit crazy! schools also.
