Default What happened to Podiatry at the Royal North Shore Hospital?

The Sydney Morning Herald are Reporting:
A staffing crisis at Royal North Shore Hospital has spread to the medical ranks, with hundreds of patients told to cool their heels while NSW Health officials recruit almost an entire new podiatry department.

A patient who spoke to The Sun-Herald has had to start treating his own feet with a razor blade at home after his past two monthly appointments were cancelled because the hospital has lost all three of its consulting podiatrists.

Almost 400 patients have been told their appointments are suspended indefinitely following the resignation of the last remaining consultant, Russell Stokes, in March.

Letters have been sent to hundreds more patients to tell them treatment has been suspended in all but emergency cases due to an ''unexpected resignation''.

The NSW opposition yesterday claimed there was a staff freeze at Royal North Shore, putting the health of podiatry patients, who are mainly diabetics, at risk.
