Dr John Urlwin will return to work at the Tanunda Medical
Centre on Monday after he took time off to recover from falling
off his bike.
Nearly four months after he
took a tumble off his pushbike, Dr
John Urlwin will return to work at
the Tanunda Medical Centre next
Dr Urlwin said he is looking
forward to returning to his role.
“It’s been wonderful relaxing for a
few months, tending the vegie patch,
catching up with friends and getting
myself back to maximum fitness
again,” said Dr Urlwin.
“But now I’m ready to go back to
work – I think absence really does
make the heart grow fonder.”
After three weeks in the Royal
Adelaide Hospital followed by a
fortnight in Hampstead Rehabilitation
Centre, Dr Jack, as he is affectionately
known by his many patients, came
home to a routine of regular and
professionally guided sessions at the
Rex, which have helped his speedy
recovery over the last few months.
He has praised the Tanunda based
facility, saying he was fortunate to
be able to access services locally and
eliminate travel to Adelaide.
“It has been terrific,” said Dr
“First, you don’t have to travel and
secondly, with the private system we
have in the Barossa, it’s convenient
and you can make appointments
at times that suit you. It works
“The quality of the local services
are excellent, at least equal to those
I experienced in the city.”
In a positive twist to the incident,
Dr Urlwin will continue his
membership at the Rex as he ramps
up his approach to a healthy lifestyle.
He also hasn’t dismissed getting back
on his bike.
And while it was a forced break
from Tanunda Medical Centre, where
he has consulted for nearly 35 years,
Dr Urlwin has not only used the time
off for recovery but also to focus on
his special area of medical interest,
“Over the last months while there
has been a daily routine to be followed
to regain my fitness, I still had the
opportunity to extend my knowledge
in the early diagnosis and treatment
of skin cancer,” said Dr Urlwin.
“Every cloud really does have a

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7, 2015
Year after year it would appear our Federal
Government continues to cut back its road funding to
local councils. At the same time our State Government
continues to add additional taxes in the form of levies
to our local council rates notice.
This form of passing the buck is placing a huge
burden on local councils who are now expected to
think more creatively in funding their running costs.
This week Mid Murray Council has voiced its
concern at both the Federal and State Governments
in their decision to cut funding for pensioner and other
In June, 2014 the Commonwealth Government cut
funding to the State Government for pensioner and
other concessions amounting to $27 million.
The State Government has maintained the
concession on council rates paid under the S.A.
Parliament’s Rates and Land Tax Remission Act 1986
this financial year. However, it has announced it will
stop concessions on rates from July 1.
Mid Murray Council estimate that next year’s rates,
for most people currently eligible for a concession,
will include a bill shock of around 20% without the
Furthermore this one council alone will be affected
with the removal of $237,719 financial assistance.
N.S.W. joins the cash for containers
It is welcome news to discover this week that the
N.S.W. Government has decided to follow South
Australia’s example and introduce a ‘cash for
containers’ scheme. Wouldn’t it be even better news
if our entire country adopted this concept?
South Australia was the first state in Australia to
introduce container deposit legislation in 1977.
In South Australia alone 79.5% of beverage
containers are recycled, thus reducing landfill and
helping to conserve manufacturing materials.
