A quick question if I may. My wife was admitted to 3 different hospitals from November 2015 until her death at the 3rd hospital in March 2016 (Dubbo Base, RPAH in Sydney & the John Hunter in Newcastle.) I want a copy of her full medical records to try & find out who was responsible for the multiple stuff-ups at 2 of these hospitals. Unfortunately, my 51-year-old wife didn't leave a will. I have tried to get a copy of her file from the Dubbo Base Hospital but I have hit a brick wall. They tell me I need to get a " Letter of Authority" from the Supreme Court before they will release my wife's files. Is there another way to get this "Letter of Authority"? I was married to my wife for 33 years & was with her until her death on the 20th March 2016. I'm on the Disability Support Pension now & don't have a lot of money backing me.
