Far too often we hear criticism of the quality or lack of health care services in this area.
Last week I needed urgent treatment. The immediate care and treatment I received at the Phillip Island Medical Group was outstanding.
The paramedics and the MICA paramedic who looked after me were second to none and the expertise, care and attention at Wonthaggi Hospital was excellent.
All these wonderful people helped me through this frightening experience.
As a community we should all be eternally grateful for the excellent services that we do have and the special work that they do.
My heartfelt thanks to everybody.
