Member for Lyne NSW, Dr. David Gillespie says a federal law regarding medical treatment for refugees and asylum seekers sends the message the government is not in control and would encourage more people to come to Australia illegally.

Dr. Gillespie voted AGAINST the Medevac Bill. Dr. Gillespie says: "The medical situation on these islands is better than many of our [Australian] regional towns".

Clearly, Dr. Gillespie knows NOTHING about the medical services available in PNG. Even the most rudimentary of supplies are rarely available.  Power can be a problem. Bedding and food must be provided by relatives of the ill, as the hospitals do not have any.  Medicines are constantly in short supply at best.  Often, appropriate medications for certain conditions are simply unavailable.

Put your money where your mouth is, Dr. Gillespie.  Work as a Doctor in a PNG Hospital for a six week period. Your credibility, and that of the LNP, is on the line on this matter.

Time to STEP UP, Dr. Gillespie, and prove you are worthy of your medical practitioner licence.
