John Hill, Ten News. Royal North Shore Hospital The crisis at the has escalated sharply.

have been lodged 40 complaints of substandard care since a woman miscarried in a toilet two weeks ago. The embattled Health Minister's first public return to the scene of the Government's biggest health headache

and, with it, a Royal North Shore hospital backdown. While at first refusing to widen the "Jana Horska miscarriage in the toilet" inquiry,

the Government has now set up a more extensive investigation into the hospital with a so-called Professional Practice Unit now on the case. Both patient clinical complaints and workforce complaints. The unit will also investigate complaints of staff bullying. And those offenders who refuse to change their ways and work cooperatively to build a new environment here at North Shore have no place in our health system. the main problems at North Shore are caused by stress arising from staff shortages. I chose it, I chose to be a nurse, and I just see all this crap going on. and I don't come here every day to be chastised. When Parliament resumes next week, the Opposition will seek an upper house inquiry into the Royal North Shore Hospital. and it's confident that will happen. It's a second-best option. The best option is the judicial independent inquiry Morris Iemma refuses to have. Adding to the Opposition's case this unsigned complaint to the Healthcare Complaints Commission said to be from Royal North Shore staff. It refers to the hospital as being "decrepit, dirty and dysfunctional." This is fairly typical of the many, many who have been speaking out. Paul Mullins, Ten News. A dramatic breakthrough in treating cancer, Sydney scientists developing a world-first test, letting doctors know within hours if treatment is working. Today, 48-year-old Cheryl Lambert is happy, healthy and in remission, but just 15 months ago a very different story. They found an 8cm tumor on my right lung, diagnosed as malignant cancer. Like many cancer patients, Cheryl underwent chemotherapy. Lots and lots of pain, lots and lots of illness. Now, new hope for cancer patients, Sydney scientists developing a dye-like substance which, when injected into the body, allows a CT scan to accurately measure cancer cells. Well, if cancer treatment is given, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, this will be an early test whether those cells are dying. In other words, whether the treatment has been successful. Just hours after treatment is administered, doctors can see if a cancer is responding. Anybody with a solid lump that's being watched by a CAT scanner could certainly benefit, and that's the majority of cancer patients. It's estimated the ink test could be used on 95% of cancers. The ink test would also allow medical scientists to design tailor-made treatment plans for individual patients, reducing hospital stays, decreasing side effects and almost certainly saving lives.

If it comes back I know that I can have this treatment and they can track to see if it's actually doing anything. If clinical trials are successful the ink could be available within five years. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News. A bittersweet day for the racing industry - just as quarantine restrictions there's confirmation of another outbreak of horse flu, this time in Newcastle. After six weeks in lockdown, another stint in a cage didn't appeal to this 2-year old filly. But for the 700 horses stabled at the infected Randwick track, it might be the best medicine they'll get.

To get them out in a bit of good pasture and get their head down and clear themselves is a good result for the horses. Most of them are being moved to properties in controlled zones around the State. That'll allow Randwick to be disinfected. in the road to recovery at Randwick. But just as the minister was overseeing their departure, the horse flu epidemic was deepening - confirmation a thoroughbred has tested positive at Broadmeadow racetrack in Newcastle. That's a major concern for us because all the horses in Newcastle were again vaccinated last Friday. We need the vaccine to go through our State a lot quicker because containment is not working. The minister spent the afternoon locked in crisis talks. as the States argue over the allocation of the 130,000 available vaccine vials. of 75,000 of those doses.

However many we get, trainers insist red tape needs to be lifted in a hurry to save an industry plunging into debt. Hundreds of millions, Paul, and the worst part about it, Paul, is if we don't get vaccination going quickly, it's going to cost a damn sight more. Today's departing fleet will be allowed back at Randwick after November 15 provided they pass blood-testing procedures. Paul Cochrane, Ten News. Emotional tributes in Perth - hundreds gathering to farewell AFL legend Chris Mainwaring at a public memorial. His wife and two young children joined in their mourning

One of the world's largest wind farms planned for New South Wales. And beachgoers treated to a rare sight off Sydney's coast.

This program is captioned live. Broken Hill The outback mining town of could soon find fame as a symbol of green energy. A $2 billion wind farm is on the cards, which would make the town one of the biggest renewable energy centres in the world. It's one of Australia's iconic bush outposts where the famous red landscape could soon be better known for being green. by in the order of 3 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emission in every year that it's operating. The company Epuron wants 500 turbines to dot the Mundi Mundi ranges north-west of Broken Hill - enough to power 400,000 homes, more than 4% of the State's electricity needs. It would be one of the biggest wind farms in the world. So far we've met with appreciation, I should say. It's the kind of nation-building project that we need in order to tackle climate change. Environmentalists now argue that the magnitude of the plan shows renewables can meet base-load power needs. better than nuclear. There is one stumbling block - Epuron needs certainty over State and Federal targets on renewable energy before the project can become financially viable. New South Wales is about to set a 15% renewable energy target for 2020, but Epuron wants that green power to be solely generated in New South Wales to ensure market share. No commitment of that, however, today. If that is more economically sourced from outside our borders rather than from within our borders than so be it. If government regulations are favourable, construction will begin in late 2009.

Kevin Rudd has called on the Prime Minister to save truckloads of taxpayers' dollars by calling the Federal Election before parliament returns next week. But John Howard spent the day shoring up his marginal seats and promising millions more for hospitals. John Howard dashed to northern Tasmania today, bearing even more gifts for two marginal seats he hopes will save his government. I'm really delighted to be here at the Mersey. The $45 million takeover will be formalised from next month, from a downgrading. saving the hospital Not everyone is impressed. I wouldn't have saved the Mersey. You've got two hospitals 45 minutes away that are both doing exactly the same services. Undeterred, Mr Howard is offering even more for the region. An additional $35 million over a period of four years for health services in northern Tasmania.

all his largesse so far has failed to move voters, with the Government trailing by a persistent 12 points. Kevin Rudd is more trusted and preferred as prime minister by similar margins. He was offering a modest $15 million for cancer research for voters. It's time for the Australian people to make a decision between my plan for the country's future and Mr Howard's plan. He says calling the election now would save taxpayers $1 million a day in advertising, and even more if it is announced before parliament is recalled. That's a truckload of money when you throw in the airfares and the accommodation as well. I think you're looking well into the millions.

The Prime Minister was evasive. It's scheduled to meet on Monday. REPORTER: Do you anticipate it will? It's scheduled to meet on Monday. The pulp mill hardly rated a mention. Liberal and Labor sources in Tasmania say off the agenda with both major parties backing it. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News, A spectacular sight for beachgoers today when a giant waterspout formed off Manly. The freak twister so tall, it could be seen for kilometres. It only lasted about 20 minutes but it had everyone on the beach mesmerised, the giant twister sucking up thousands of litres of water, throwing it high into the sky above, the waterspout an impromptu tourist attraction. Look, I thought that was awesome out there, I've never seen anything like it - and this gushing sound! It was pretty amazing. I thought it was kinda scary. It was very, very exciting.

Sydney scientists have developed a dye-like substance that allows a CT scan to accurately measure cancer cells. The test will allow doctors to tailor cancer treatments and monitor the progress, reducing side-effects and hospital stays. The RTA has apologised to drivers, ripping up thousands of speeding tickets wasn't properly signposted. after a new school zone camera 4,000 angry motorists had launched a class action over the infringements. And the State Government has agreed to widen its inquiry into the Royal North Shore Hospital. It comes after dozens of complaints of substandard care were laid against the hospital since revelations a woman miscarried in a toilet two weeks ago. The ACT Government has defended staff at Canberra Hospital where a man died during a 4-hour wait for treatment. 30-year-old Allan Osterberg was brought to the hospital in an ambulance but his heart condition wasn't picked up by emergency department staff

until it was too late. But we will, inevitably, see a system that does make mistakes from time to time. That is inevitable in a system of its size and complexity. Two seperate inquiries will look into Mr Osterberg's death and claims staff thought he'd fallen asleep. Welcome now to Noel Whittaker who'll be joining us on a regular basis for the BankWest finance report. Noel, substantial changes to the age pensions asset test for the first time, or a larger payment than they were getting previously. How does all of this works? Well, there's been a big easing in the assets test

and that means a couple can now have $839,500 and still get a part pension, and a single $529,250. and if you get a part pension, you get most of the fringe benefits. Noel, what's actually included in these figures? Is it everything a pensioner has? Well, it's most things, but it doesn't include the family home. That means you could be living in a $10 million house, have $800,000 of assets and still get a part pension and most of the precious fringe benefits. What about all those personal things like household furniture? Well, they're valued at sort of knock-down, garage-sale value so for most people for your personal effects, just a maximum figure of $5,000. Noel Whittaker with the BankWest finance report. Now to the stock market details. A new exercise for kids is being condemned as far too sexual. While supporters say it's innocent, healthy fun,

the Premier and family groups are worried about young children being taught a form of pole dancing. Pole dancing was once only for strippers but its latest form has really set pulses racing. That's because students of Pole Fitness include children, like 10-year-old John. It's good because you get a whole different variety of moves and they've got really nothing to do with pole dancing - it's just fitness. We don't do any dancing whatsoever. Basically it's just stretching, strength-building, flipping, climbing. And there's no high heels or sexy underwear. Instructors insist

they've stripped away the adult element to create a child-friendly new exercise. Have a look for yourself -

I would be an irresponsible parent if I was to introduce my son to a program that demeans women. But the Family Association disagrees, saying you can't get past the fact that this is a highly phallic symbol. To me as a dad of four kids, it would not be appropriate for kids that young. Pole dance teachers say while they're adults only, they can understand children's interest. A child would come in here and see that and go, "Ooh, a monkey bar, Great - I'll climb to the top." But John's already hooked, even if he is yet to tell his friends. I don't really mind what they say - I don't mind if they laugh, but it's a good thing to do. Ali Donaldson, Ten News. Australian fashion designer Collette Dinnigan has again conquered the catwalk in Paris. The designer is the only Australian presenting her latest ready to wear collection at Paris Fashion Week. She says her spring-summer look is fresh, young, sporty and luxurious - confident without being expensive. It's not necessary anymore to kind of say Australian fashion or English fashion. It's a global world, and we all have our own kind of uniqueness, and I think Australia is very much about lifestyle. The show was hailed a success with only one small hitch, when a model almost took a tumble on the catwalk.
