Justin Field: Question in Parliament on Dr Holland resignation

Justin Field, Member of the Legislative Council in the NSW Parliament posts: This week’s public resignation of Dr Michael Holland, the Visiting Medical Officer (Obstetrics & Gynaecology) at the Southern NSW Local Health District should ring alarm bells within NSW Health about the adequacy of planning for and delivery of maternity services on the South Coast.

But if you listen to this answer by the Minister, it seems the Government is more intent to blame local health practitioners than to acknowledge the inadequacy of resourcing across the region.

The women of the South Coast are being short changed when it comes to adequate maternity and neonatal services and the Government seems intent to shoot the messenger.

NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
