Picton takes prime position for health in SA
South Australia's new health minister Chris Picton was sworn in yesterday, following last week’s election win for Labor.
The 39-year-old Mr Picton was chief of staff to John Hill, a former SA health minister and MHA for the same seat of Kaurna. He also had a stint as staffer to former federal health minister Nicola Roxon.
With hospitals, healthcare and ambulance ramping the big issues in the SA election, speculation has begun as to the future of the SA Health executive, including CEO Chris McGowan.
