Central and North Burnett Times - - NATIONAL & WORLD NEWS -

AF­TER the Queens­land Govern­ment brushed off claims doc­tors would soon flee re­gional ar­eas over the doc­tor con­tract cri­sis, its leader has de­tailed how dif­fi­cult it could be plac­ing doc­tors out­side the south-east cor­ner in re­sponse to a ques­tion on no­tice about aged care. Pre­mier Camp­bell New­man said per­ceived dif­fi­cul­ties with ca­reer ad­vance­ment and work-life­style bal­ance for fam­i­lies were the main rea­sons it was dif­fi­cult to re­cruit and keep staff in re­gional Queens­land.
