To borrow a word from Paul Keating, I’d like to call Brad Hazzard a nincompoop.
He says of the shambolic situation at the Northern Beaches Hospital operating it “isn't a case of put in water, mix and cook”. Too right Nincompoop! The opening of a state of the art hospital which cost the NSW taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars is not equivalent to the baking of a packet cake mix.
When Qantas launched its new Dreamliner route to England did the planes takes off expecting a few teething problems? Or were they thoroughly tested and proven sky worthy first.
Northern Beaches Hospital is a er…um… hospital Nincompoop. It’s operations are meant to be exemplary from day one. The buck stops with you.
