When the medical supply business is on its knees, it’s time to change the way it operates

Medical supply has been a crucial pillar of the Australian economy for decades.

But the market’s downturn has seen it shrink from $2.5 trillion in 2016 to $1.8 trillion this year, according to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Now the industry is in desperate need of a boost.

Medical supply business operating in 2018 The number of patients receiving medical services from Australia’s medical supply industry has been shrinking for more than a decade.

The Australian Bureau Of Statistics says there are about 10,000 medical supply jobs in the country, down from a peak of 25,000 jobs in 2007.

While this is an improvement, the number of jobs remains small compared to the rest of the health and health care sectors.

“Our overall employment is at around 3,000,” Dr Mark Taylor, CEO of the Centre for Medicare, Medical and Dental Services, told the ABC.

“And that’s in a workforce that has shrunk to almost zero.”

Healthcare supply has also been hit hard.

Since the recession began in 2008, the industry has shed more than 7,000 full-time jobs, according a recent report from the Centre on Health Economics and Policy.

However, that’s not enough to keep pace with the population.

And while the health sector has been working to bring in more jobs, many patients are choosing not to go to the doctor anymore.

A growing number of people in Australia say they don’t use their medical equipment, even though the cost of doing so has increased.

Dr Taylor said some of the biggest challenges faced by the supply chain are over-reliance on the supply of equipment, and poor quality and affordability of supplies.

He said a lack of quality in the industry meant patients needed to be aware of the risks of certain drugs, and how to protect themselves from adverse events.

‘We can’t afford it’ Dr Taylor said a shortage of medicines was a growing problem.

This led to the medical supplies industry having to work with the health industry to provide the best care, with some patients finding the quality of the medical equipment they were using to be inconsistent.

In the last 12 months, more than 70 per cent of patients taking medicines for the first time, were on medication from Australia.

It’s a trend that is likely to continue, with doctors warning of the consequences of not properly securing supplies.

“We’re going to see more and more people going out and not getting the quality medicines they need,” he said.

When doctors have to be in a room with people with pre-existing conditions, they have to worry about not having enough medication.

For some doctors, that is a real risk.

But the medical system is not the only sector facing problems.

There is a growing demand for the kind of medicine that doctors need to perform a procedure, and a lack in supply.

According to the Australian College of Surgeons, there are now more than 600,000 people aged over 65 in Australia, and about 6.5 million of them use prescription drugs.

Even if there is a shortage, many of those patients are not willing to pay a significant amount of money.

Instead, they are opting to go out and buy cheap, generic drugs.

In a world where people can choose from a range of prescription drugs, some may opt for cheaper options.

Australian hospitals have seen a surge in the number patients being admitted with chronic pain.

An Australian hospital in Melbourne recently had to stop accepting patients for an operation because of the high demand.

Patients who do get in with the cost associated with medical equipment could be in for a rude awakening.

With many hospitals struggling to meet the demand, a shortage in medicines has led to patients opting not to seek out care in the first place.

Some doctors fear the impact on patients will be worse than the costs of treatment.

Doctors say a shortage is already being felt, with a recent ABC investigation showing many doctors are worried about a potential rise in costs.
