“A review into practices at Peel Health Campus is welcomed in order to clear the air of any questions about the conduct of medical professionals,” AMA (WA) President Dr Richard Choong said.
“This ongoing saga is having a disruptive and negative impact on the provision of health care both at Peel Health Campus and the wider Peel and Kwinana community,” Dr Choong said.
“The sooner this matter is resolved, the quicker doctors can get on with caring for their patients without the questions swirling around the Parliamentary Inquiry hanging over their heads.
“Professor Stokes is an inspired choice as an independent Reviewer,” Dr Choong said.
“He has demonstrated repeatedly over recent years that he is able to conduct this type of review in a questioning and a consultative manner.
“As an experienced clinician, Prof Stokes has the medical knowledge to cut through many of the issues, and as a senior public sector official he has the experience to know what the accusations related to medical administration really mean,” Dr Choong said.
The AMA (WA) indicated that it is happy to assist Prof Stokes in whatever way he thinks fit, Dr Choong said.
