Eddie Cross: The Crisis in our Health Sector

By Eddie Cross I passed a billboard which said Government fires hundreds of Doctors . My gut reaction? How stupid that is! We spend tens of thousands of dollars giving a child a primary and secondary education over a period of 16 years. At the end of that period out of about 400 000 school leavers we end up with a tiny minority who have survived to their 6th Form years, survived the toughest exams in the school world and emerged with sufficient points to get admitted to the most prized University programme there is - medicine. We then put them through a first degree and then a tough medical training which lasts another 7 years - 23 years of study and sacrifice by the student and parents. Then we demand that they do an internship in a State run medical facility before they can escape into the lucrative private sector. Many elect to go on to specialise.
