No wonder Jack Snelling left when he did. This is the disgusting state of health care in SA and after Labor spent $2.6bn!!! Waiting times longer than before, no beds available… basically a complete disaster!
And we have the most expensive hospital in the southern hemisphere!
They should all hand their heads in shame and all the heads of the Health Department should be fired immediately! No excuse for such complete incompetence in looking after our most vulnerable!
More evidence that governments attack those who can’t fight back, namely the ill and the poor.
The net medical expenses tax offset will no longer be available from 1 July 2019.
From 1 July 2019 if you have to buy a wheelchair to get around, the tax offset you were allowed (a pathetic 10% of the cost, but at least something) is being deleted. How lovely and caring of those on over $200k p.a. and couldn’t give a stuff.
“From the 2014-15 income year until the end of the 2018-2019 income year, taxpayers can only claim the net medical expenses tax offset for medical expenses that both meet: the current definition and eligibility requirements, and relate to disability aids, attendant care or aged care”.
How lovely of our caring government to kick all sick people in the balls!
Good morning. My body has given up on me (I now suffer from Chronic Fibromyalgia and CFS/ME) so I’m not working anymore, but my brain is still functioning (mostly!).
I’m looking for a scholarship to do a Masters in Research on startup programs and communities, to find out which provides the most successful outcomes in terms of real, sustainable businesses created, in what industries, analysing the type of support structure (people, finance, relevant mentoring) that produces the best ongoing results.
Any Universities out there who have a program they’d like assessed against their peers and want to discover the most efficient and effective ways to run their programs?
Most business articles on how to be successful are crap. You do what works for you, we are individuals. Yes some basic humanity and empathy is required but articles that begin with “The 5 steps to…” are complete time wasters.
Of course this is just my opinion, but the way they make it sound as though it will work for everyone shows a complete lack of objectivity and, basically, reality.
If you’re looking for a magic formula you’d have better luck chasing the next rainbow.
A partnership visa in Australia costs nearly $7,000, plus the Migration Agent’s fees, making a total of over $10,000!
This is significantly higher than other countries, and about a six-fold increase on what the fee used to be just ten years ago.
The Federal Government sees immigration as a cash cow, as all visa fees have drastically increased within the last ten years.
Love really does hurt… especially in the hip pocket!
Centrelink is there for the needy, sick and disadvantaged, and yet provides the worst service of any government agency.
The top level of management needs to be sacked immediately, along with their middle management that publish outrageously incorrect phone answering statistics.
Then, and I know this will cost us, but there needs to be a Royal Commission into the whole Department and the policies currently in place. It could easily be a case of the right people being tied up by stupid beaurocracy. Until such a public, complete investigation is done those most in need of help in our society will continue to be treated with disdain.
We should all be ashamed, especially the policy makers who make it so difficult for Centrelink staff to do their job, for treating our people so badly.

To The Hon Christian Porter MP: Centrelink payments should take into account your net income, NOT your gross income.
Counting your gross income is plain crazy, as you don’t get to keep it all, you pay taxes! And yet your “support” from Centrelink is reduced by every GROSS dollar you earn.
Just another way to cut people’s benefits and save the government money so they can spend big on wasteful promises and gain votes!
