I leave a healthy legacy
Departing WA Health Department boss Kim Snowball says he has left the WA health system in a much better condition than he inherited. Rob Broadfield spoke to Mr Snowball about his decision to leave after three years and the areas that still need to be addressed.
Tell me what he did so well to deserve the money he was earning ???John Wednesday 2 January, 2013 - 9:18 PM
No, you don't leave the Health System in a better state, in this State, Mr Snowball.
It was bad before, and, as far as I've experienced, it's the same, if not worse.
Which is pretty ironic coming from one who has private health insurance, wouldn't you say?
And, no, this State's public hospitals and all their overseas contracted doctors and nurses will never have, except over my unconscious or dead body, any access to my private health funds.
And as for St John Ambulance: the less said about them and their lax and ridiculous call centre staff who rely on a Federal Government funded Health Direct line to give advice due to their ineptness, the better.Dellas Sunday 30 December, 2012 - 7:51 PM
