    Given the wild gyrations in the world markets, I certainly wouldn't accept a 10 year agreement with no possibility of renegotiation. Would you? Hospital wards are routinely at more than 100% capacity, while the government refuses to fund necessary additional medical staff and facilities for the system. Our population is growing. The facilities need to grow in tandem. As a result, the hospitals end up going after medical tourism to cover their shortfall. Where are all our taxes going? Ask citizens where their priorities lie, and I believe health, welfare and education will end up much higher than indicated by current government budgets. Do you want your medical treatment provided by a doctor whose judgment is clouded by fatigue. I certainly don't. Doctors earn every penny they receive and deserve more -- much more.
