I’ve been advised by someone very high up in the NT health bureaucracy that the Federal Government will be announcing a very substantial increase in funding for remote health services in the NT. This will apparently occur in the next few days.
It’s the bleeding obvious response to the situation. There shouldn’t be any doubt about this, but given the level of incompetence displayed to date and the ideologically driven agenda pursued by Howard and Brough, I won’t hold my breath.
But let’s hope that it’s true.
