Private Obstetrics: The Real Reason Why Private Patient Numbers Are Falling, And It’s Not Due To The Rebates.

Maternity wards have been closing and numbers of private patients are falling.  I only discovered this recently, and when I did, I could see right through it. It’s not a problem of rebates or transparency. There is something very different going on here. When patients say they don’t have the

Want to run retreats?

Our first retreat was in Bali. We got a group of our pre-med students together, hired a pimp-ass villa in Seminyak and spent 5 days teaching them interview skills, laying on the beach drinking Bin-Tangs and visiting local schools to hand out school uniforms. It was amazing. Hard work, but
