"Metro North Brisbane Medicare Local has helped me when I was at my wit's end."

About: Team Care Coordination (Brisbane North PHN)

(as a service user),

After having a hernia operation, I was sent home to recuperate. I live alone. Because I was told not to strain or lift anything heavy, I rang nine organizations seeking help. No one could help me. So in desperation I contacted my GP who sent off a fax informing Medicare Local Metro North Brisbane of my dilemma. The very next day I had a visit from a Team care co-ordinator who was so informative, helpful and empathetic that I am now able to access domestic help for the next four weeks. I am most grateful for this as I was at my wit's end, worrying as to how I would cope alone. I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful and important service.
