ASPS Backs Request for a Meeting with the NSW Minister for Health Regarding Safe Sedation
The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons supports the request by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists for a meeting with the NSW Minister for Health, Mr Brad Hazzard, in order to discuss the issue of safe sedation. This request arises following the recent death of a woman, allegedly as a result of an unsafe breast implant, in premises in Chippendale in NSW.
ASPS is also liaising with the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery on this matter.
