What XXXX news, so sorry, hope things get sorted quickly xxx
Julia, So sorry to hear your news. Hope everything works out for you and your family.
Look forward to seeing you again when you return
How bloody silly. Makes my blood boil. Are u.k standards so inferior to ozzie ones!!!!
I can remember reading what you guys do and thinking my god they've got it so right.
Does it mean they will not allow him to practise? If so what job has he actually been doing the past 11 months.
This is something that needs to be addressed. There is a shortage of anaesthetists here. I wonder if oyu have thought about going public. Or making an appeal, if that is possible. Do you have a good immigration specialist.
Recently the immigration department tried to send back a country doctor as his son had Down syndrome and therefore failed the health criteria. Through the media it was appealed and the minister stepped in. Just a thought!
I'd get onto "A Current Affair" pronto. You never know. The Australian Immigration system is a complete ass.

That is absolutely, well actually I've no words to describe it..... British Standard versus Aussie standard....!!!! mmmmmmm!!!! no more comments. Best of luck to you both in whatever life path you take
I read this entire thread with total amazement. I'm assuming that you came over on the basis of his skills and I also assume that his skills were required because they didn't have the staff with the skills he has......so how can they then turn around and no longer recognise his skills and the work he has done in the time being here. This seems wholly unfair and unjust.
I admire your attitude...a lot of people would take this kind of thing in such a way that they would be on here slating everything about Australia...I hope that you find a solution to this and a fast one too. No matter where you end up in the world, that country will be better of for having people with the attitude you guys appear to have.
I wish you all the best and hope that you end up where you want to be!!!
Many thanks to all of you for you kind words and thoughts.
Your responses have been of huge comfort to us and we know that Australia is the place we want to bring our family up.
After a long weekend away in the Flinders Ranges and lots of rational thinking and pro's and cons of living in both countries, we are almost ready to commit to a decsion that will change our lives.
One weekend seems such a short space of time to make such a huge decision, but I think we are ready to face what will be thrown at us in the coming months, with smiles on our faces and a sense of satsfaction that we have done the right thing.
I'll keep you informed of our final decision when we feel the time is right to totally commit, until then though, we are determined to continue to enjoy this beautiful place we like to call home.
