In print, on the air and now on tv

Therese is nothing if not tenacious. Since the untimely death of her husband she has fought against the system that killed her husband. They are strong words and allegations to make, especially against the might of the New South Wales Health Department and Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital. She wants an open inquiry into his death and if you read her book, hear her on air or see her on tv, you may well think it is a reasonable request.

Therese is an intelligent woman, and so if the man she loved can end up in the situation her Don did, then it can happen to anyone, you or yours included.

Her latest effort to keep the pressure on was a segment on NSW Channel 10 news.

Here is the link. It is only a couple of minutes once you are past the ad.

  1. Therese deserves some kind of award for her dedication, determination, resilience, and her love of Don. We can all see what a great pair they were and share her devastation that sloppy management took a good man from three loving women.

    you get 'em TM. If you were a small furry animal it would be ferret or fox terrier.

    (lovely post too HR. X X)

  2. Good on her Andrew, I bet there are a few people out there with grievances that just don't have the energy to fight the system.

    1. They do try to wear people down Grace, but not Therese so far.

  3. MPs are full of wrath and indignation when in opposition and then compliant to the 'system' when in government.

    1. Precisely what her tv piece could be summed up as Victor. But regardless, it was all very poor treatment by RNSH.

  4. Through my work I knew Don and Therese for many years. Through your blog, we recently made contact again. What an interesting connection. Agree with your comments about them both.

    1. Really James. The world is not such a big place at all, I find.
