Academic – Victorian Health Services Staff – Students
From a 35 year veteran of Victorian Health Services, a provocative and entertaining novel.
The Cut is offered in a special release promotion to all Health colleagues.
At a time when world health systems are stressed beyond belief – some insights & solutions.
Disturbingly accurate and carefully nuanced, this insider’s novel of what goes on (and wrong) in health systems is compelling reading.
In ‘The Cut,’ Dr Harvey Pearce is an emergency specialist who has spent a career looking after the sickest patients and improving emergency care. When he uncovers politically orchestrated activities that kill patients, harm staff, hide deficiencies and hinder progress, he becomes determined to find a solution.
Across the city, episodes of patient injury and preventable deaths continue despite Harvey’s struggles with bureaucracy. He drives to investigate these events, and their sinister connections, whilst the establishment resists his efforts and its leaders continue to tolerate catastrophes.
Harvey finds a grounding for his efforts through podcasts, which fuel his aspirations as he struggles to put things right.
The podcasts propose a pragmatic approach, offering a view that his world could be better navigated with a closer focus on what really matters.
But Harvey is quickly confronted with desperate and ruthless players who turn his efforts at reform into a perilous game with critical stakes.
