About: Margaret River Hospital Princess Margaret Hospital for Children Royal Flying Doctor Service

(as a parent/guardian),

My child hurt his leg at football. We went straight to emergency & were greeted by an amazing nurse who dealt with my child in the most amazing way. The doctor who attended to my child was fantastic & the second nurse who assisted was very caring & compassionate. X-rays confirmed my child had broken their femur & required transfer via RFDS to PMH (Princess Margaret Hospital for Children). The staff kept us updated on things constantly & I was able to feel as calm & relaxed as possible as a result.

Dear Footy Mum,

I’m very sorry to hear about your son’s football injury. I’m glad to hear, however, that our excellent colleagues at Margaret River Hospital and the RFDS were able to assist him and you in such a way that minimised the trauma and stress as they prepared him for his transfer to PMH. I hope his recovery is going well and he’ll be back on track for the next football season.

Best wishes

Dr Victor Cheng
A/Executive Director
Princess Margaret Hospital for Children
