  19. I got this from the Australian version of Yahoo news. It looks like nursing is going from strength to strength. Labor planning for 9,250 more nurses Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd has announced an $81 million plan to put an extra 9,250 nurses into Australia's hospitals. After touring the Mater Hospital in Brisbane, Mr Rudd announced the initiative which would aim to attract trained nurses back into the profession and provide for an extra 1,500 graduate nurses. ADVERTISEMENT "This is a significant first step in Labor's long term plan to meet the large nursing shortfall that currently exists under the Howard government," he said. "Australia's public and private hospitals desperately need more nurses." The Labor initiative is over five years. Federal health minister Tony Abbott dismissed the plan. Mr Abbott said wooing trained nurses back into hospitals with a financial bonus could cause resentment amongst nurses currently working in the health system. "Giving nurses who aren't currently in the system some sort of one-off bonus to come back in, apart from anything else, that could well breed resentment for those nurses who have always stayed at their post," he said. Mr Abbott, who is campaigning in two marginal West Australian electorates, says he is not surprised by an opinion poll showing a coalition recovery on economic management. "I've always thought that the polls over the last few months have very significantly overstated Kevin Rudd strengths, indicating a very bad result for the government. "On the street there's never been anything like the kind of obvious resentment that would justify the sort of polls we've been seeing." Mr Abbott said the government was very much still the underdog. "The real workers' party these days is the Liberal party," Mr Abbott said. "I think any claims Labor may historically have to represent the workers of Australia are very old fashioned these days." Prime Minister John Howard says it's interesting Opposition Leader Kevin Rudd chose to make a health funding announcement at a hospital run by a community board. Mr Rudd made his announcement at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. Mr Howard pointed out Mater was run by a local community board. The federal government wants to see more hospitals run by community boards, a plan Labor is opposed to. "That is interesting, very very interesting indeed," Mr Howard told reporters. "I thought boards were bad. "But it's a wonderful hospital, and anything that involves training more nurses I support," he said on the funding announcement. Nurses say Labor's plan to bring 9,250 extra nurses into Australia's hospital system is a step in the right direction. "The plan ... is a move in the right direction," said Royal College of Nursing Australia executive director Rosemary Bryant. "This plan recognises the vital role that registered nurses play in the health system and makes a valuable investment into the education of nurses. "The provision of appropriately qualified nurses will improve health service delivery and thus better outcomes for consumers of these services." But the college, a professional body for nurses, said Labor must also look beyond hospitals to address nursing shortages in other health and aged care sectors. Good luck all you nurses out there (well, every one really) The Tuckers
  20. Hi I wonder if anyone can help us. :arghh: My OH is a mechanic and needs to get references from ex-employers to be used for the skills assessment. He has contacted ex-employers and they ask what he wants them to put because they are just used to the normal reference, who he is, how long he worked for them and that he was a good worker etc. Obviously the reference we need is slightly more detailed, but just how detailed does it have to be? Does anyone have an example of such a reference that they used for their old TRA application or any help with the wording. (we know the rules have changed). We want to make the whole process as easy and straight forward for the ex-employers as possible, so if we have something to show them they will understand what we are looking for. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks Julia and Kent

    Just wanted to say Hi......

    Hi Guys, We have just joined this site, we are off to Perth around May next year, we are just waiting on our medicals etc and then we are to sell our house, arrange shipping etc. We are a family of 5 with the oldest child being 5 and a half, then a 4 year old and then an 18 month old.We would very much like help with advice on shipping, what to take with us, which are the best suburbs to look at in Perth and any other advice which you would be kind enough to share. My husband si a carpenter so we are going out on the skilled visa. Our friends think we are mad as we don't really know anyone out there, Kris doesn't have a job to go to and the can't understand why we want to leave Eastbourne as its right by the sea and and a t the foot of the downs. But we are looking forward to it....so if anyone can help us or give us any advice we would be really grateful. many thanks and I hope this is not too long for my first posting!!:smile: Lou and the gang
  23. Hello to everybody, I'm 29 and moving to Perth in a little over 4 weeks. Initially on a 2 year WHM visa but would love to make this a permanent move by seeking company sponsorship. If anybody would like to meet up that would be cool, just drop us a pm or reply to this post. Cheers Sarah :SLEEP:
  24. Dear Poms I am cheekily posting a note on this site from grey old London as I want to speak/meet any Brits now living in Australia who might tell us what it has been like making the big move and how life is now/compared to back in UK. The reason is we have ITV interested (don't get too excited, they have not given us the money.. yet) in a new drama series idea about a group of British friends who all decide to up sticks and move to Australia. So a sort of modern Auf Wiedersehen Pet, but this time everyone does different jobs, and some bring families with them. We have a top screenwriter writing a script (he created Wild At Heart and co-created Life On Mars) who is also coming to Melbourne in October and in order for the show to be as truthful and entertaining as possible, we would love to talk to anyone who has emigrated, and could share some of their hilarious or horror stories of their experiences. As I say, early days as we are only at the writing stage, not the making stage, of the show, but hopefully if we write a good script then ITV will say yes and we will be making a long running hit TV series to be shown in the UK and Australia, all about people like you. So if you fancy dropping me an email, or fancy a coffee with my writer when he comes to Melbourne (if you live there/near there) that we would be hugely grateful for all and any help! Many thanks in advance.
