  1. I understand there are restrictions on importing knives and wooden items into Australia. I therefore wanted to know if it is ok to include our set of kitchen chopping knives, Cheeseboards and used Pots in a shipment of our belongings. We have a couple of good Kitchen knife sets and I would like to bring these with us. Anyone had any involvement or issues with such items? Thanks Tomski
  2. Hi all, my husband, son and I are hoping to come to australia on a 457 visa and im trying to go through the whole process ourselves to save on the large amounts of cash some agencies are quoting! Just looking for some nurses who are going through or who have gone through the process to clarify that im doing things right and not missing anything. Ive just started the whole process and already spending hours a day on the computer researching this! My eyes will be square by the end of it all So far, i understand you have to register with the ANMC to complete a skills assesment, this also includes doing a IELTS english test?, after this I then apply to be registered with the relevant nursing board,in my case we are aiming for perth area therefore will register with NMBWA? Do i complete the skills assesmnt first before applying with the nursing board or will the request the skills assesment as part of the application? as stated we will be applying via the 457 visa route so in order to obtain sponsership do you recommend contacting as many private and public health sectors around the area we wish to live and ask about sponsership or is there another way of going about it? I have spoken with MEDISERVE (nursing agency) who have stated they sponser overseas nurses, is this is a good option or is it just as easy to obtain sponsership by contacting permenant employers? Regarding agencies, are they just similar to the UK where you could be in a different area every shift or do the agencies have alot of temporary work available on temp contracts for 3/6 months etc?.....not sure id enjoy constant agency work for the years before PR. I have experience in acute medical receiving and respiratory. Im hoping im on the right road or the days ive spend accumulating housework as ive been clued to the computer have been a waste of time Im thinking the hardest part is going to be finding furnished accomodation!! thanks
  3. Health boards could lose £85 million because of rising inflation, Labour has warned. The party made the claim on the assumption that inflation would outstrip the SNP government's budget increases at 4.4%. All health boards and the Scottish Ambulance Service would suffer under the scenario. Labour called on health minister Nicola Sturgeon to find extra funds, warning that patients could suffer from real-term cuts. But the SNP attacked the claim as "absurd and inaccurate". A spokesman said when the government made their NHS budget increases they were above the projected inflation rate at the time. Margaret Curran, Labour's health spokeswoman, said: "These are not just efficiency savings, but real cuts to the health service totalling over £85 million. I am very concerned that patient care will suffer as a result. "If Nicola Sturgeon doesn't want to be branded the Minister for Health Cuts she must make the NHS a genuine priority for the SNP and find the money to fund it properly." The government allocated an increase in funds of around 3% - adding £257 million to health board and other health service budgets. Labour claimed 4.4% inflation would lead to real-term cuts of between £300,000 in Orkney to £21.7 million in Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Grampian would face cuts of £5.9 million and Lothian would lose £8.7 million. The ambulance service would lose £2.2 million, Labour said.
