    Not good...What is the plan here? Is your system similar to Oz whereby your govt provides free health care? If so, with the introduction of this privatision policy, will the health care still be provided free, but the govt pay a private company? Or will patients have to pay?

    Either way, it doesn't look good for nurses, unless you get an excellent company to work for, and that is not guaranteed.

    Community health I believe saves the Health System alot of money, by treating those who otherwise would be admitted to hospital. As such, one would think that the govt would be concentrating on building up community / district health centres and staff...
