Death in absentia

A Melbourne man is surprised to learn that he died while in hospital:

Peter Thornton was admitted to the Alfred Hospital in early March for a severe bout of gastro.

He checked himself out after he says he was left lying on a trolley for 12 hours.

On visiting his GP yesterday, he was shown a letter from the Alfred stating he died on March 9.

Good luck convincing the government he's still alive.

You have just discovered how Krudd is going to "fix" the health system. Declare all patients to be dead. Good. We can all go home now.
