Inquest into the death of Kurt Mellick Andriske
2. Mr Andriske was born in 1964. Not much is known of Mr Andriske’s life prior to 2006, when he started seeing general practitioner Dr Helen Wessell. Mr Andriske was being treated by Dr Wessell for the following conditions: bipolar disorder, neuropathic pain, Hepatitis B and C, and chronic airways disease. Dr Wessell prescribed him number of medications including Valium, Serepax, and Lithium. Medicare records suggest that Mr Andriske saw Dr Wessell (or in her absence, other doctors in her practice) virtually exclusively during the period September 2012 to December 2016.
