I use the services of the hospital and medical practitioners on a frequent basis and I support the recent comments on this issue by Dr George Kokar.
This is not an episode of Yes Minister, where at the end of the 30-minute episode we can have a laugh and the effect goes away.
This reduction in surgical services at the Yorketown Hospital is going to have an adverse effect on the medical services provided to the community by our local medical professionals. We as a community will either have to travel to Wallaroo, Port Augusta or Adelaide just to have a scan and further treatment if needed.
As a member of our local community I strongly urge everybody affected to protest to the Minister for Health Jack Snelling about the ridiculous proposed changes to our medical services.
