Further to this post in which the extensive details that were used in a complaint lodged with Commissioner Dawson and her people at the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission about Dr Brooks are set out, a response has been received headed “Our decision concerning your complaint about Dr Andrew Brooks.”
It can be summed up in this single sentence in it – “We have not identified a deficiency in the clinical care and treatment provided to you by Dr Brooks.”
So there you are readers – our reader had complained that there HAD been a deficiency in the clinical care and treatment provided to him by Dr Brooks in that, after he’d been referred to him for help with his frequency problem, he’d been having to get up 2 or 3 times a night to go to the toilet, Brooks had submitted him an operation under a full anaesthetic, which always has it’s risks, he’d spent 2 uncomfortable days in hospital, all at a cost of more than $6,000, including Brooks’ $3,200 fee for less than an hours work, even after Medicare rebates, and, he STILL had the frequency problem exactly the same, even years later, as Brooks had admitted himself in writing. AND his sex life had been detrimentally affected, it was for the rest of his life, it couldn’t be reversed, in that his semen was no longer ejected through his penis, with all the pleasure that brings, it just went up into his bladder.
And the response from Commissioner Dawson and her people?
As simple flat rejection! There HADN’T been a deficiency in his clinical care and treatment!!!.
This is such typical Sue Dawson stuff! It happens time and time again. To us, the HCCC, under Dawson is a blight on the state of New South Wales. And the fact nothing is done about it is a blight on the Berejiklian Government – the people in it who have the power to do something have had plenty of time to do something about it – but they obviously don’t care.
Come on readers – let’s try and make Premier Berejiklian and her people feel that there are votes in it for them to do something
The greatest concern is that it creates a reward system under which the “crooks” are doing better, making more money and so on, than the “good guys.” Under which, the “crooks” feel they can almost get away with murder, because they can. Something which we think should be a matter of concern to all of us.
