"Losing weight with Murrumbidgee Medicare Local."

(as a service user),

We have only been seeing Kay for about 4-5 months. Kay is the rural primary health nurse for the Murrumbidgee Medicare Local. My family have all been trying to lose weight. My husband has had a lot of health problems and suffers from depression, weighed over 100kg and has previously found it difficult to get up off the couch and move around. We were encouraged to see Kay who has motived us to move more by going for walks etc. Since then my husband and daughters have all lost weight and go walking together and generally feel better. My husband's mood also seems to have improved and he doesn't spend as much time sitting down as he used to. My daughter's confidence also appears to have improved.

We are definitely more motivated and healthier since Kay has come into our lives. Sometimes we meet up with her for lunch, she is a really nice person and is really involved with our family and is always encouraging us every step of the way. Kay always seems to go out of her way, she will visit or call us just to check in and make sure we have been to our various appointments.
