Opposition health spokesman Shane Reti said health reforms coming on July 1 would put further pressure on a system at breaking point.

Opposition health spokesman Shane Reti said health reforms coming on July 1 would put further pressure on a system at breaking point.

He says the current issues are about people, not politics – and more emphasis needs to be put on building the workforce.

“While the system is breaking, why would you make the biggest health reforms in the last 20 years in the context of a system that is already breaking. And health reforms health are not the savior – they are now becoming a contributor to the problem we have here now. We should settle business as usual first before they even consider making health reforms,” ​​says Dr Reti.

He says the quickest way to resolve the crisis is to change immigration settings so that nurses can be brought in at the same speed as doctors,
