"Travelling through the Kimberley I had a fall and injured my wrist"
Posted by Fluff (as ),
At first we thought it was a sprain but it wasn't getting better. We were a group travelling the Gibb River Road (yes, very isolated) and after 6 days I went to Kunnanurra District Hospital. I received fabulous care and attention - x ray, cast - but had to continue onto Darwin where they recommended I to to Royal Darwin Hospital, which I did. Again terrific service. On my return to Melbourne I went to Emergency at Western Health Footscray. Again terrific, highly competent and professional service! We are so lucky to live in a country with a wonderful public health system and should support it and the people who work within it as strongly as we can.
