Decision time for public hospitals

by


David Penington

On Monday 7 December Kevin Rudd will present to COAG, what recommendations of the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission (NHHRC), or what alternatives should be adopted. COAG will reach final decisions at a further meeting in March 2010. In 2007, he had promised to ‘fix’ the public hospitals, taking them over if the States had not fixed them in a year.
