I received this from an anaesthesia trainee : the future of our profession.
I am an ANZCA trainee currently working at XXX and I am highly concerned with regards lack of appropriate PPE, at our hospital as well as statewide.
We as a group are very concerned that there has been no transparency by the government exactly what PPE supply is available, and I am scared for the safety of our workforce, my colleagues and myself.
I am extremely concerned the public have no idea of the lack of resources available, nor the possible and probable demise of too many healthcare workers as a result of lack of insufficient/inadequate PPE.
I am sure there are ways that we are able to help, and I’m sure I can speak on behalf of all of my colleagues that we are happy to all do all in our power to improve this situation.
We need to enforce a statewide lockdown, as you have fought for on so many occasions – our hospitals are going to be swamped.
Please let me know how we as a group are able to help.
Thank you and kind regards,
