'... reveals the huge hidden toil of medical malpractice in Australia. Thousands of Australians are killed or injured every year by their own doctors. And although patients are suing their doctors in increasing numbers, those who do represent only a tiny fraction of the injuries. Some Doctors Make You Sick is a startling expose of bad medical practices in Australia.
It reveals how the law has enabled negligent and incompetent doctors to escape penalty, while their hapless victims are left without redress. It reveals how medical defense organisations use an array of 'dirty tricks' to stifle legal action by patients.
It tells, for the first time, the real story of the "deep-sleep" Chelmsford Hospital affair - and why so many deaths were ignored for so long.'
