Doctors from the Launceston General Hospital have released a letter to management detailing concerns over unsafe conditions for patients in the Emergency Department.
Opposition Leader Rebecca White has responded to claims from the Premier that Labor helped draft the letter, stating it is “entirely untrue” and undermines the credibility and the integrity of those doctors.
Premier Peter Gutwein and Health Minister Sarah Courtney were both unavailable to speak on Tasmania Talks this morning.

The Tasmanian Branch of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) has stated the issues raised in the letter are long-standing.
