Specialist Doctors

Seek to rationalize the staffing levels for specialist doctors at Nobles in line with actual deman. Some departments have shameful waiting lists for even initial assessment.  Others send patients off island for routine treatment. Does the budget for that exceed the cost of employing additional doctors? Similarly does the cost of off island doctors visiting the hospital weekly or fortnightly exceed the cost of employing additional doctors.

Why the contribution is important

If it were found to be financially more prudent to employ a level and range of specialists more in line with actual need, then not only could money be saved, but also perhaps waiting lists could be reduced.  Patients treated more rapidly has a knock on effect in business and society generally.
