You’re not alone in wanting the truth about medical error.
Estimates tell us that between 18,000 and 54,000 Australians are killed by their medical treatment each year, and not their illness.
These staggering death figures are just the ones we know of. Nobody keeps accurate figures — most are covered up.
Medical negligence is not isolated to just the acutely ill or the critically injured. It’s about the unlucky thousands who trusted the medical system and were injured and killed in it.
Mums and dads killed by botched routine medical procedures — yes, your parents, your precious little boy or girl, our gallant servicemen home for treatment, expectant mothers, accident victims, sports stars, the famous — medical negligence does not discriminate.
Shocked? How would you feel if it happened in your family? From go to whoa is sheer hell getting to the bottom of it. Everyone lies.
Hundreds of doctors across Australia are under medical “conditions” for careless and deadly mistakes, as well as fraud, drug impairment, sexual misconduct and criminal behaviour. Good luck finding out who they are. The scary thing is their track record doesn’t bar them from practising medicine.
Speak up! Put bad doctors ‘out of business’. Truth is our greatest weapon, but it’s useless if people don’t hear it. Become the media! While YOU remain quiet, rogue medicos’ misdeeds remain quiet, and THEIR malpractice continues unabated.
Get active and support Medical Error Action Group. Medical negligence is not a “club” you want to be a part of, believe us.
“Temperate, sincere and intelligent inquiry and discussion are only to be
dreaded by advocates of error. The truth need not fear them.”
Benjamin Rush, physician 1746-1813
