Medical and Scientific: Sick hospitals need urgent fix

25 Jan 2021 - Medical and Scientific

Immediately reinstating 100 closed public hospital beds — and committing to adding a further 600 across WA — tops the pre-election wish list of the State’s peak medical body. The Australian Medical Association (WA) is also calling on both major parties to commit to establishing mental health “crisis-care units” at all major Perth hospitals, ramping up cancer screening to make up for examinations cancelled during the COVID-19 pandemic and bringing WA in line with the rest of the nation by employing public health doctors permanently, rather than on fixed-term contracts.
