Enough is Enough – have your say
THE State Government has been in the news lately, trying to push contracts onto doctors.
A large majority of doctors affected by this have indicated they will not be signing the new contacts, due to unacceptable clauses, such as being able to be transferred to other towns at short notice. A previous Federal election saw “Workchoices” legislation as a major issue for employees Australia-wide.
These contracts have been likened to “Workchoices for doctors”, and negotiations are ongoing.
Biggenden Medical Centre’s Dr John Davis wants to be left alone to look after his patients.
“Whether I am allowed to after April remains to be seen. “I am calling on residents to put pen to paper and do something about this. “It will be too late after we all get booted out or transferred.
“Please contact Member for Callide Jeff Seeney as well as health minister Lawrence Springboard and the premier Campbell Newman.
“They will listen to angry patients and voters, not to doctors,” he said.
