The state’s peak medical body is struggling to engage the state government in crisis talks. 

There are fears the state’s health system, which is already under pressure, will not handle a coronavirus outbreak.

Leading doctors from across the state will meet this Thursday for a ‘Ramping Roundtable’ crisis meeting.

Ramping Roundtable Chair Dr Kim Hansen told Neil Breen doctors “would love to see” Queensland Health attend the talks.

Neil Breen: “And they’ve been invited?”

Kim Hansen: “Yes.”

Neil Breen: “Have they ever attended?”

Kim Hansen: “Not so far.”

Neil Breen: “Never bothered to attend, hey…?”

Press PLAY below to hear the full interview 

Queensland Health has since confirmed a representative will be sent to this Thursday’s meeting.
