"Emergency Department"

About: Wonthaggi Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I presented to the Emergency Department and from this moment the care started. I was examined by the duty emergency doctor and his partner. I can only remember his name as Garry?   I had an overnight stay. The attention I received was just fabulous. I am elderly and during my lifetime have seen hospital departments at their worst and best. My experience here was first class. The care shown was just brilliant. To Garry, I'd like to say thank you.

Dear delighted,

Thank you for such a lovely post - Garry is our Clinical Director and he leads a fabulous team of nurses, doctors and administrative staff. I will pass on your comments to the ED team and I have no doubt they will be very chuffed with your feedback. I hope you are now well and wish you all the best.

Kind Regards,
