Bad old days are back

A QT story 16/09/2010 reports of ambulances bypassing Ipswich emergency dept and ambulances ramping with patients waiting in the car park and we all remember fire engines attending medical emergencies because of this.

A couple years later under Campbell Newman's government the QT 29/04/2014 reports Ipswich emergency is one of best in the country.

The QT 13/02/2016 now reports a blow-out in the budget , the most telling line in this report is that "staffing numbers have grown without a corresponding growth in activity."

It is clear the state Labor government learnt nothing during their years in Opposition, it seems we are destined to see the return to the bad old days with inept government.
