Shooting The Breeze About The State of Public Health, Saving Lives & Vapes!

For this episode I was once again graced by not one, but TWO courageous doctors who have bravely spoken out - and continue to speak out - against the mismanagement of our healthcare systems; the disastrous real-world consequences of failed policies; and what it's like being a doctor in a post-pandemic world.

Fellow West Australian, Dr Joe Kosterich, and fellow former libertarian political candidate, Dr Julian Fidge, joined me to discuss the topical issue of health, which affects all of us. From the state of public healthcare to the State's affect on the quality of service provided; to the relationship between government, the regulator, the medical industry and our medical professionals: Dr Joe and Dr Fidge share their unique insights and stories from the frontline.

I asked for their views on the death of seven-year-old Aishwarya at Perth Children's Hospital in 2021, with Dr Fidge recounting a shocking story of government mismanagement of a public hospital in Queensland that led to the death of a patient there. We also discuss the Australian Government's prohibition-by-prescription approach to vaping.
