$20billion for Medical Research Future Fund paid for by $7 co-payments to GP visit right. If you’re not poor, sounds good. Quick math check yo.
$20billion divided by
23,487,698 people in Australia
Comes out to $851.50
divided by the $7 co payment
Equals 121.6 visits
I personally have been to the doctor 2 times in the last 5 years of my life. SO for my contribution to meet quota, I would have to live on average another 300 years. But that’s ridiculous you say, surely you will get more sick as you get older. Good point. If I double my GP visits per 5 year gap I would still have to reach 54years of age to meet my personal quota, assuming I go to the GP more than once a month, every month, from the age of 49-54. Once again obviously ridiculous.
However for this fund to reach $20billion, as promised, Every single person in Australia today will need to go their GP once a week for the next 2.33 years. Or roughly how long it will take for those QLD scum dogs to win their 10th straight State of origin. But I digress.
We are going to need a fuck load more GP’s to handle this SPLOSION of people knocking down their doors. As it stands there are 43,400 GP’s currently practicing in Australia.
This equates to each GP seeing 541.2 people per week, all paying their $7 contribution.
Assuming the average GP works 50hrs per week this equates to 10.82 patients per hour or 1 patient per 5.5 mins.
Once again RIDICULOUS.
Australians make on average 115million trips to the gp each Year. Or 4.896 per year. Fuck it round it up to 5. This means that we only have to wait 24 years and 4 months until we hit the mark.
However when we do we will have the biggest investment of its kind in the WORLD. That is assuming of course that every other country in the world sits on its ass until September 2038.
ERRRRRMAAAHHHHGGGGUUURRRDD…. Reee fucking diculous.
But hay don’t worry, If you are a pregnant woman working in a small to medium construction firm with a husband in defence and the 2 kids you already have want to be a ballerina and go to the army. You win my darling, you fucking win.
