GAWLER Hospital is set to undergo a significant operation, with the State Government committing to a multi-million dollar upgrade of its emergency department (ED).
THE State Government has rejected claims it is planning to privatise some services at the Lyell McEwin Hospital, calling them “union chatter”.
NURSES at the Gawler hospital could take industrial action if pay and working condition negotiations between the State Government and the nurses’ union continue to stall.
SOUTH Australian health minister Stephen Wade refused to write a letter of support to the private Adelaide radiology clinic that beat out Gawler Hospital for one of only four fully Medicare-rebatable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) licences awarded in South Australia earlier this year.
HEALTH Minister Stephen Wade has denied claims support staff for the State Government’s regional health reforms will be Adelaide-based.
