Story received by phone:
My father was a patient in Townsville Hospital after suffering a head injury. He was subsequently transferred to Cairns Hospital. I assume this was to be closer to us, we live closer to Cairns but still a long way. He developed an infection in his wound I think as a result of the move. Thankfully this is now clearing up. When I asked the social worker at Townsville, Matt, why he was moved they didn't know. When I asked the social worker at Cairns, Patricia, they didn't know either.
Having Dad at Townsville is more convenient for us as we have family there. We don't know anyone in Cairns.
