Gurrumul Yunupingu, Australia's most famous Indigenous singer, wants a formal apology from the Royal Darwin Hospital after being left to bleed internally for 15 hours last week.
Yunupingu, who has battled with Hepatitis B since he was a child, was admitted to Royal Darwin Hospital last week due to problems with his liver disease.
Those allegations have been refuted by the NT minister for health John Elferink. He refused requests for an investigation into the incident and controversially said that the claims of racial profiling were a publicity stunt to sell more albums.
"I'm assuming that the Indigenous affairs minister wants a report from the hospital, which is essentially getting a report from the people who said that there was nothing wrong," Grose says.
