"Help gratefully received (Ipswich Hospital)"

About: Ipswich Hospital / Emergency Department

(as the patient),

I am at present at the Ipswich Hospital, and since my last patient opinion

( https://www.patientopinion.org.au/opinions/58717 ), have received top notch treatment. The Ipswich Hospital has now positively progressed in helping me cope with some horrendous pain and vomiting. I'm sorry that it took a public forum to achieve this effect, but thank goodness for Patient Opinion, and a big thank you to Dr. Jane, and the staff from the ER, to the nurses and doctors on the ward. It's amazing how far a little understanding, and good communication, can take you. Thank you once again Patient Opinion and the Ipswich Hospital.
