The Urgent Issues Facing Our Public Healthcare System

Our public healthcare system is said to be at its breaking point, with several urgent issues being raised. First, the Health Minister has admitted that our emergency departments are overwhelmed, so we discuss what needs to be done to address this. Then, we talk about contract pharmacists and the roadblocks they face when it comes to getting permanent positions.
