Public service announcement from Doctors who work in the private sector at the Mount Hospital Perth :

By 23/03/2020News, Uncategorized


As a group of 10 cardiac anaesthetists working at the Mount, we believe the government isn’t acting as quickly as this situation demands.

As a combined group we are receiving a great deal of local and international updates. We are reviewing all of this information and performing our own calculations.

Collectively we feel the government is acting about two weeks too late with most of their decisions. We want the public to take their own sensible measures now and not wait for delayed government instruction.

The time to go into lockdown isn’t now, but a week ago.

We have been so lucky in Perth to have a two-week window to see what is happening in other states and countries. We must use this advantage to the maximum benefit.

We are asking you to consider:

·      ACTING EARLIER THAN YOU THINK IS NECESSARY.

·      IF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T CLOSE SCHOOLS TODAY, PLEASE, IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, TAKE YOUR CHILDREN OUT NOW.

·      DO NOT GO TO RESTAURANTS OR CAFES, ANY GATHERINGS OR MEETINGS, GYM, PILATES, THE HAIRDRESSERS, THE PODIATRIST, THE MASSEUSE, ANY PARTIES OR SMALL GATHERINGS, ETC ETC – THAT MEANS NOTHING EXCEPT THE BAREST ESSENTIALS NECESSARY TO SUSTAIN LIFE, EG FOOD, AND MEDICINES.

·      STAY AT HOME! YOU ARE A POTENTIAL CARRIER.

·      DO NOT GO TO HOSPITAL FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN EMERGENCY CARE.

·      DO NOT UNDERTAKE ELECTIVE SURGERY UNLESS DEEMED ESSENTIAL BY YOUR DOCTORS

IT is essential everyone does their part. It would be best if you acted NOW. Please protect not only yourself and your family, but also you will be protecting your community as well.

We want to be a Singapore or Hong Kong not a USA.

Please try and forward this to everyone in your address book.

Dr Steve Same, Dr Ken Williams, Dr Paul Rodoreda, Dr Mark Schneider, Dr Kris Wardle, Dr Warren Pavey, Dr Ann Ngui, Dr Paul Sadleir, Dr Anton Van Niekerk, Dr Peter Baird
