"A clear picture of potential outcomes given."

About: Geraldton Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter is an inpatient at Geraldton Hospital receiving pregnancy related treatment and was reviewed by the Obstetric Registrar Christina over the weekend.  The thought the care provided was professional, objective, balanced and empathetic. It is important for patients to receive a clear picture of potential outcomes and the tone of communication with patients is so important particularly in difficult circumstance. This care has also been reflected by the great team of midwives at Geraldton Hospital. Thank you for your care.
