Sure there are programs to try and get people to pick nursing as a profession. What are they doing to keep existing ones there or stop them going to hospitals of less need
I would have thought that upgrading facilities would help, I remember the staff at Box Hill hospital were rapt with the new working conditions in comparison to the old hospital
Anyway i hope more help is coming

Have heard that the announcement today re northern expansion is still really thought bubble stage. The proposed area currently has existing staff that need relocation first

That is support staff (important ones like IT and interpreter services)

So where are the β€œanti woke anti PC why are you erasing our history” types that the ALP is now proposing to erase our history by renaming this hospital from it’s indigenous Australian name to be named after a foreigner?

Yeah, not a fan of this renaming malarkey from Dan to be honest. If Dan gotta rename something why not rename

(joke answer) newly-landscaped hospital gardens after her?

or

(serious answer) the block of public toilets at Croydon Station after her? Dan could even ask The Majesty's official Groom of the Stool (wiper by Royal Appointment to the Regal Arse) to officiate at such a joyous occasion.

Seriously Dan. For f*ck's sake. Just pull your head in and yes, dare I say it. Get on the beers. Don't make me start waving a red ensign about the place.

The Australian defending Andrews over the hospital name is brilliant. There's no principle that they're not prepared to cast aside in order to fight a culture war.

don't think the average joe or jill gives a rats tossbag about the name. it's the facility that resonates.
its a classic example of virtue signalling that conservatives (and the far right) bang on about when criticising their opponents

given the good he's done advancing work on treaty and truth telling, it just beggars belief he would do this .... that said, youre probably right, this likely wont register on most peoples minds .... even tho it should

so true ,no one gives a rats what a hospital is called , as long as they can attend for treatment , only those few special people would arc up, its plain weird

Dan has not covered himself in glory with the Maroondah hospital renaming but he has shown how he acts when questioned is the same regardless of the question or who is asking it

s**t effort

I did see someone the other day say they and other First Nations people will no longer feel safe going to hospital there under the new name…

slack jawed troglodytes who banged on endlessly about post-lockdown restrictions triggering mental health relapses reject such challenges can equally apply on matters of important cultural significance to first nations people

We live in a different world. Kids nowadays don't want to " grow up " and be;
. A policeman
. A nurse
. A fireman
. A kindergarten teacher
. A social worker

We have you-tubers, influencers and reality stars.
Why do you think that? Why do you think that is?

your suggestion is to stick the colonisers name with the original name

it's s**t
Thats your opinion and its s**t house, how many things do you want to be named after an area
Maroondah dam
Maroondah trail
Maroondah reservoir park
Maroondah Council
The list is long

The only hospital in Victoria with a First Nations name is being renamed after the symbol of colonisation and your answer is wedge the two together, enough other things are already called Maroondah

how very British Empire of you
