MONDAY MORNING NOTE -
ANOTHER BIG COMMUNITY STORY IGNORED BY THE CAIRNS POST
THIS UPDATE FROM THE MEETING:
190 PERMANENT JOBS TO GO, PLUS 44 OTHERS. SAID TO BE "LARGELY ADMINISTRATIVE", BUT NO DETAILS YET. DO ADMINISTRATORS NOT NEED TO HAVE JOBS & FEED THEIR FAMILIES?
Hospital Board Chairman "Un-sir" Bob Norman confirms the cuts, then magically states "they'll go out of administrative roles and more people will be on the frontline". If you're sacking 234 people Bob, where do the "more people on the frontline" come from, eh?
And then Norman says "by that I mean the people that deliver babies and put bandages on people".
I hope he knows that our doctors and nurses do a whole lot more than this. . .
