When you have a problem with vein clinics, you should know how to contact the police
Queensland Police are warning people with serious medical problems to contact police if they believe they are being harassed.
Key points:Health Minister James Merlino says his department will be using Twitter to get people to report suspected threats or harassment at a vein clinicVentilation is often referred to as “pain management” because of its benefits to healthIt is a controversial subject, and many believe it should be left up to individual patients.
However, Queensland Health Minister James Morgan says his state is working with Twitter to help people get the word out.
“We’ve had some tweets about this, which we’re looking into, and we’ll be using them to let people know if they’re reporting something, if they think it’s something they can report to police,” he said.
“But we’re not taking any steps yet at this stage to police the people involved.”
Mr Morgan said it was the first time Queensland had asked the public to report a reported incident.
“If you’re reporting someone who’s a patient, or someone that has a serious medical condition and they’ve told you they’ve been verbally abused, you shouldn’t be afraid to tell the police,” Mr Morgan said.
Police will use Twitter to send information about potential threats to the Queensland Ambulance Service, the Queensland Police Service, and the Queensland Crime Commission.
“The Queensland Ambuls are always on the lookout for people to complain about, but they’re not doing any policing,” he added.
“It’s the only way to make sure there’s a report made.”
And it’s also a very, very good thing that we’re working with the police on this.
