Report Card highlights basic service failure for regional Australia

Regional Australia, including some area's around the Wide Bay is missing out on basic services. That's according to a report card by the Regional Australia Institute that's scoring access to psychologists, preschool teachers and dentists an “F”.  The report shows that inner regional towns, which are closer to cities, have seen an 85 per cent growth in professionals in the last 30 years, while remote and very remote areas have only grown by 7 per cent. Our region hasn't scored well for the number of dentists per 100 thousand people.
