    Speech to AMA Forum on Health of Asylum Seekers – Prof Brian Owler

    Doctors at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne and, more recently at the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane have refused to release children from hospital because they would be returned to detention.

    Some commentators have seen this as a form of political protest. But Professor Brian Owler, as a doctor working in a paediatric hospital, who deals with the consequences of physical abuse, explains that there is no reasonable other option for these doctors and nurses to take.
