Patients and staff could both suffer if SA Pathology’s Murray Bridge operations are outsourced according to Family First MP Robert Brokenshire.Patients and staff could both suffer if SA Pathology’s Murray Bridge operations are outsourced, Family First MP Robert Brokenshire believes.

A review of the organisation has recommended the State Government consider outsourcing its regional laboratory operations, such as the one at the Murray Bridge hospital, to private companies.

Review authors Ernst and Young were not able to put a figure on how much money the measure would save SA Pathology.

But they did find the organisation had failed to meet a savings target of 12 per cent of its budget, and that its diagnostic services in particular cost almost 50pc more than was acceptable.

In total, the outsourcing and five other recommendations could save up to $43.6 million and result in the loss of the equivalent of 332 full time jobs.

An SA Health spokesperson said the report made no recommendations to change services in regional areas.

However, Mr Brokenshire criticised what he called a slippery step on the slope to privatisation.

“Medical practitioners and patients could be at risk all because the government is looking for an easy fix to its budget woes,” he said.

“A lot of the work done by the men and women at these laboratories needs to be done quick and efficiently.

“Cutting jobs and privatising regional labs is not the solution.”

Staff and other stakeholders will be consulted on the changes before February 6, and the State Government will respond after that.

As well as its Murray Bridge laboratory, SA Pathology has patient collection centres at the hospital, Bridge Clinic, Southside Clinic and Mannum Medical Centre.

– Details: Staff and stakeholders are invited to comment on the proposals before February 6 by writing to health.sapatholog [email protected] sa.gov.au or Consultation SA Pathology Review, Office for Business Review and Implementa-tion, GPO Box 287, Adelaide, SA 5000.

Critic: Family First MP Robert Brokenshire is sceptical about proposed changes to SA Pathology that could include outsourcing the operation of its Murray Bridge laboratory.

A truck left Whyalla on January 9 bound for Adelaide, containing a large number of donations from locals wanting to help.

Owners Les and Susan Burgess said it was the least they could do as a business for people who had been left displaced or lost their homes as a result of severe bushfires in the Adelaide Hills.

“We decided to give back,” Mrs Burgess said.

The business had been a drop-off point for community donations but also helped to transport Shoeboxes of Love collected by registered drop off point, Australian Mortgage Brokers.

Mrs Burgess said they were working closely with BlazeAid that would ensure the donations they had collected would reach where it was most needed.

“We’ll be delivering the donations to selected locations, which will then be distributed to people in need,” Mrs Burgess said.

The business was inundated with donations such as non-perishable food, clothes, nappies, toilet paper, toiletries and manchester.

Receptionist Prue Tooby and staff member Thomas Shannon helped to organise the items ready for transport.

Mrs Tooby said the community had been generous in wanting to help those affected.

“I was overwhelmed by how many donations we received,” Mrs Tooby said.

Mrs Tooby said it was good to see community members “paying it forward” by giving items to people truly in need.

“It’s great to see the community coming together to support another community,” Mrs Tooby said.

ACCOUNTABLE: Southern Region Commander and former Goulburn Local Area Commander Gary Worboys fronted the media on Monday about Mr Norris’s deathSource: Southern Highlands News
Nanjing Night Net

HUME local area command police have been caught up in a death in custody.

A Mittagong man died on Sunday night after a violent confrontation with Bowral police at McDonald’s.

Inspector John Klepczarek from Bowral Police Station said police were called to a disturbance at the fast-food restaurant where Kevin Norris, 38, was acting aggressively.

“He had allegedly been involved in a domestic assault with his girlfriend and then left her house and went to McDonald’s and caused a disturbance,” he said.

“Two female officers were assaulted by Mr Norris.

“They sustained facial injuries and were treated at Bowral Hospital.”

Insp. Klepczarek said the two officers were thrown around during the altercation.

“One of the officers used capsicum spray in an attempt to subdue him,” Insp. Klepczarek said.

“He then assaulted the other officer who used a Taser.

“They eventually got handcuffs on him and transported him to Bowral Police Station.”

The officers called an ambulance as a precaution and Insp. Klepczarek said Mr Norris was in the dock when he slumped and lost consciousness and was unable to be revived.

Mr Norris’ girlfriend Raylene ‘Tess’ Waters told Channel Nine that her boyfriend had been on a three-day methamphetamine, or ‘ice’, binge at the time.

“They could’ve cuffed him,” she said.

“If there were that many police there, they could’ve held him down until they got him cuffed.

“He would’ve been that shaken and that revved up and that psyched that he wouldn’t have been able to take the shock of it. I feel the Taser killed him.”

However, Insp. Klepczarek said that was all now before the coroner where an autopsy was expected to be carried out this week to determine Mr Norris’ cause of death.

An independent critical incident investigation team has been formed to investigate.

Horsham Rural Citytechnical services director John Martin said work planned for the first few weeks after the break included installation of concrete panels for a lift and excavation works.

Work to erect structural steel in the new auditorium area should also be completed.

Mr Martin said the laneway to the west side of the new auditorium would be closed this week.

A temporary footpath on Pynsent Street will also be installed.

‘‘The duration of this footpath has not yet been

confirmed,’’ Mr Martin said.

The second level of concrete panels will also be put up this week.

Mr Martin said it would involve significant crane work.

He expected the work to occur towards the end of the week.

‘‘Following that, next week it is planned that the excavation works for a large hydraulic tank will occur,’’ he said.

‘‘This tank is 140,000 litres, and will involve excavation to a depth of about four metres.

‘‘It is planned for these works to be completed within three days.’’

Mr Martin said significant progress on the $19.6-million project had occurred before the Christmas break.

Works included the erection of a large amount of structural steel and other steel elements for the main auditorium and adjoining areas; installation of roofing on the collection store area; installation of much of the mechanical plant on the plant platform; and framing work on the southern end of the new part of the building.

THE first day of the two week second grade fixture against Leagues-Wherrol Flat United was played in oppressive conditions at iconic Central Park on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

An unlucky toss to lose, Wingham fielded first to watch the temperature gauge across the road climb into the mid-30s without a breeze initially to bring relief.

A quick wicket to Rhyce Kleindeinst saw the innings-high partnership of 65 come together, but once it was ended by a sensational catch to substitute fielder Matty “Buckets” Brislane; 1 for 70 quickly turned into 92 all-out as the Wingham side mopped up the tail. Mitch Niven and Jye Kleindeinst each bagged three wickets, Buckets took another catch, and Joel Kleindeinst took a classy stumping from all reports.

Tim Bridge’s maiden century was one of the highlights when it was Wingham’s turn to bat. Coming in at three-down, he built a composed innings before skipping through the nervous 90’s with a six and a four to raise his bat to the appreciative crowd. His 100 not out consisted of 11 fours and one six, and he shared a sixth-wicket partnership of 154 in even time with Mitch Niven making his return to grade-cricket with a dominant 82.Jacko Mullen assisted well with 35 runs (one single, the rest boundaries) while Robbie Hynes steadied the top-order with a captain’s knock 37. Wingham declared at 8-321 to make the United side bat again, but they lasted the 10 overs well to be 0-30 at stumps. They will have to bat well though to avoid out-right defeat next week.

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward presents $5000 to Illawarra Light Railway Museum President Brad Johns and work side supervisor John Garity. Picture: ELIZA WINKLERIIllawarra Light Railway Museum Society received a $5000 boost last week to restore the historic Kiama locomotive.
Nanjing Night Net

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward presented the cheque over to the museum, which will go towards rebuilding the saddle tank (water storage tank).

The train – named ‘Kiama’- used to run down Terralong Street from near Kiama Leisure Centre to the Jetty, carrying Blue Steel and other materials which would then be transported.

“It should take about five to six months to restore the saddle tank.”

The 1917 Davenport locomotive stopped running in Kiama in 1941, and was later recovered by ILRMS in 1978 where they began its restoration.

In 2017, the train will reach a 100-year milestone and ILRMS work site supervisor John Garity said it will be up and running by then.

“It should take about five to six months to restore the saddle tank,” he said.

“The money will go towards the material that covers the inside of the tank so we can retain most of its character.”

Mr Ward said he was pleased to present the funding to such a popular local attraction with so much history on display.

“ILRMS provides a terrific place for public exhibition of light railway locomotives and rolling stock, along with other items of historical interest and value,” he said.

“The museum also educates the public in relation to the mechanics, manufacture and operation of steam engines.”
