No involvement in Katter claims: AMA (WA)

No involvement in Katter claims: AMA (WA)


Friday 17 April 2015

The comments made by Bob Katter MP in relation to supposed complications at Fiona Stanley Hospital and resultant blood test results are incorrect and irresponsible in the extreme, the AMA (WA) said today.

 

No such data exists, let alone been supplied or commented on by the AMA (WA).

 

“The AMA (WA) has not said anything of the sort claimed by Mr Katter and we know nothing about any ‘reports’ of blood test conducted on patients who attended Fiona Stanley Hospital,” AMA (WA) President Dr Michael Gannon said.

 

“I have never heard such a bizarre claim from any member of any Australian Parliament,” he said.

 

“These claims are alarming and unacceptable.

 

“It baffles me as to why someone who carries the title of MP would deliberately create fear in the Australian community.”

 

“These claims are completely false. They are reprehensible and were never made by the AMA (WA).

 

“I urge all media outlets to treat these outlandish accusations with the derision they deserve, unless Mr Katter supplies something in the way of substantial evidence,” Dr Gannon said.
