Prof John Wilson,Royal Australasian College of Physicians, resigns from Victorian Hospital
A senior Victorian Doctor resigns over health crisis –
by Alison Ryan
Professor John Wilson, a senior doctor at Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital major trauma centre has resigned as deteriorating conditions escalate in Victoria’s healthcare system.
Professor Wilson is responsible for the treatment of patients with different lung disorders, including cystic fibrosis, asthma and pneumonia.
“We’ve got absolutely unacceptable ambulance ramping, staff that are burnt out and unable to service the needs of the community,” he said.
“We’re talking about hospitals that have no beds to put people in who’ve got acute injuries and acute illnesses. We have a terrible and dire situation that is unprecedented.”
Increasingly, the ill and injured are being ferried to hospitals in the back of private cars because there are no ambulances available, as queuing at overcrowded hospitals has at times severely limited paramedics’ ability to respond to new callouts.
Other critically ill Victorians are being resuscitated in corridors and overflowing emergency department waiting rooms.
News that an eight-year-old child has died 21 hours after attending Monash Children’s Hospital’s emergency department with stomach pain is under review.
A man from country Victoria who suffered a cardiac arrest in a hospital bathroom, died after waiting more than three hours for admission into the emergency department at the Bairnsdale Regional Health Service in East Gippsland last month.
“It is a systematic crisis impacting every hospital in the state,” Professor Wilson said, “I love my patients and I love my team, so I feel very sad and struggled with the decision for many months. But if we keep accepting this and nobody makes a stand, then it’ll keep going and get worse. It has to be said that enough is enough.”
He will step down from his role as president of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
Daniel Andrews continues to ignore the triple-zero crisis. The Victorian Premier has refused to reveal whether he had read Graham Ashton’s report into the failings of ESTA, despite it sitting on his desk for weeks.
