Thanks for your opinion, it's good that the healthcare will not differ so much - my doctors and hospitals staff here have been fantastic - just like you said about blood tests, my doctor had ordered all sorts of tests for me and thats how we discovered my T1D. He was able to refer me to a public hospital and they dealt with me quickly and have been so helpful.
Meds - wow prices take some getting used to lol - no wonder there are chemists on every street corner! That aside, the care is great so far and I feel supported.
Perth is very modern, I will miss it if we move to Adelaide but I'd rather the necessities and a city with a bit of soul where we can afford our own home over some pretty buildings and suburbs - it wears off after a while :).
I hope you can secure work soon - do you think there is a lack of need for IT staff as the main industries are retail, defence and nursing? Best of luck x
