This quote by Mr. Trent Twomey, a pharmacist and chair of the Cairns-based Northern Queensland Primary Healthcare Network, says it all:
"The $30 Million of savings identified for the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service" (in the Ernst and Young hospital audit) "might not be achieved unless the health service's annual budget is significantly boosted".
You can't make this shit up.
Twomey is the owner of what many regard as the grossly-overpriced "Good Price Pharmacy" and is known to be a strong supporter of pharmacy deregulation. Regulations that have handsomely rewarded the Twomey family with overseas trips to Europe, America, Disneyland, and other destinations just this year.
