A letter received by email from one of our readers:-
“THE PATIENT WAS GIVEN DRUGS WHICH ENDED HIS LIFE, ON THE GROUNDS OF FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT THE STATE OF HIS HEALTH, BUT THE HCCC FOUND THAT THERE WAS NO CASE TO ANSWER.”
We’ve no way of knowing whether these claims are true, but we’ve found in the past that the Commission just doesn’t care what’s said about them. But we’ll send them a copy of this post, just in case they may want to make some comment.
If these claims are true, we feel EXTREMELY sorry for our reader, in that she wasted time and effort making her complaint, based on the incredibly naive assumptions (a) that the hospital concerned, whether it was public and private, (we don’t know which,) would be upfront and honest about anything, and (b) that, in any case, the HCCC would find that anybody had done anything wrong. We’re sure that he or she has learnt a lot from their experience.
