Doc­tor’s con­cern

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS - Paul Joice WHIT­SUN­DAYS

A VOTE for Kevin Rudd and La­bor is a vote to lose more ru­ral doc­tors.

Mr Rudd changed the ru­ral clas­si­fi­ca­tion scheme so our ru­ral towns now have to com­pete with cities like Cairns and Townsville; they have re­peat­edly re­fused per­mis­sion to al­low us to em­ploy over­seas doc­tors be­cause they say we are over-doc­tored and now they in­tend to make it more dif­fi­cult for ru­ral doc­tors to up­date their train­ing by cap­ping ed­u­ca­tion ex­penses.
