"Treatment after a car accident"

About: Geraldton Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

After we were transported to Geraldton Regional from Dongara we were greeted by staff who treated us with compassion and care from the moment we arrived .

They were friendly, efficient and caring, ensuring we were given food and a cuppa after we were cleared medically.

Couldn’t fault the efficiency of the doctor who was very thorough and explained everything so we knew what was going on.
