In reply: The opinion expressed by Dunbar and Reddy that: “The real problems in Bundaberg were that there were no local mechanisms for health professionals to raise their concerns” ignores the many real difficulties (canvassed in my editorial)1 confronting any member of staff who tried to raise their concerns within that institution. Local mechanisms cannot play their part if the institution’s senior staff do not wish to implement them.
