Doctor Shortage Perth

My partner is in so much chronic pain she cannot walk and with 2 retiring doctors at her medical centre in Perth, she has been prescribed Panadol and left neglected for months. I talked her into writing a note of demand for her medical files so that she can find a GP which will bother to refer her to a back specialist. It's sad to see her wither away to less than 40 Kg just because of a conspiracy to restrict doctor training in Perth. We all know it's to keep Perth doctor's incomes high by restricting supply, just like the guilds did in Europe but when you see it impact on your loved ones, it makes me wonder why our political and compassionate medical leaders haven't busted the doors open at medical training centres in Perth to get more medical training done. Doctors left in Perth deservedly earn well but at what cost to their stressed private lives? No wonder many Perth doctors retire early.
