I am in country Victoria Australia and am totally disgusted with the medical services we have in this state. I dont know if anyone else has the 'disservices' that we do in the world. The Government spends most of its money and resources in Melbourne especially with the upcoming Commonwealth Games in a couple of weeks time. A family member recently died because her family doctor decided she was not ill enough to go to hospital even though she was in considerable pain. She could'nt eat and was so thin her husband finally decided to take the matter into his own hands and call an ambulance. They finally found out she had cancer. I am not alone in my comments and this is common throughout Country Victoria.
So to the Bracks Government I say put your priorities where they really matter; saving peoples' lives.
