    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SA Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Front line staff are dedicated, well-trained and client-focused.

    Cons

    Back-of-house (10 000+ public servants) are process-focused, unmotivated, sick of 'Reform' by a senior management team that changes every five minutes because they're used as scapegoats by politicians.

    Massive waste and inefficiency. Needs strategic reorientation away from palliative care to preventative care.

    Advice to Management

    Remind politicians that their job is to provide top-cover, not throw managers under the bus every time something goes wrong.

    Stop acting as a palliative care facility. Perform real triage. If someon'e dying, send them to a private facility or to their relatives. Save the beds for people who can be saved.
