    An independent Inquiry has been announced into the matter of James Griffin and his alleged abuses at Launceston General Hospital. But some say it doesn't go far enough - we need a Royal Commission.
    We then go back in history, for clues as to what may happen next.

Adamina14 ,

Great listen and am keen to see where it goes!

Am really enjoying this podcast. I don’t agree with one of the comments that this was poor journalism or hard to follow. I think it’s great work and I listen to a lot of true crime. Further, I have a background in healthcare management and specialise in understanding root causes of failures. I haven’t listened to all of the episodes yet but I can see Camille is asking the right questions to get there. Always important to hear these stories so we can learn from them!

Wtf do you need 7 complaints

The nurse

A story that many of us knows happens again and again. Terrible subject about misuse of power but another story that needs to aired.Thanks to all who found bravery.
