I have been a patient of The Townsville Hospital for 10 years. For 8 of those years I was a non-compliant diabetic patient. I have been treated kindly and professionally. Staff are like a family to me, They make me a tea every time.
I believe the discharge service here is one of the best services around. They are professional and compassionate, day patients are made to feel so comfortable.
Up in the wards, each department I come across is magnificent, you know someone cares.
Both Sue the Occupational Therapist, and the doctor at the Diabetes Clinic are fantastic in my opinion.
I have friends in palliative care and they appear to me to feel at ease and the staff seem to look after the families and are very sensitive.
The multicultural doctors I have seen have been great.
From what I have seen, indigenous people are treated very well, the staff appear to be culturally sensitive and very inclusive.
The only slight issue is the people smoking at the front entrance. Maybe they need to be more strict on stopping this.
