My father was diagnosed with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma (skin cancer), as any person would understand, having cancer or having a family member with cancer is an extremely overwhelming time. Since my Dad's diagnosis in early 2017 we have dealt with a number of different health care providers & organisations. We travel on a weekly basis to appointments within the Bass Coast Health, Wonthaggi Medical Clinic, La Trobe Regional Health and Alfred Health, La Trobe Cancer Care Clinic & numerous physicians. All have been brilliant. My Dad's main care providers who have been with us since Dad's diagnosis are the District Nurses from Bass Coast Health, I cannot even begin to describe how valuable this service has been to not only my Dad but his whole family. This service has meant Dad hasn't had to be hospitalised the entire time he has been ill, it allows him to stay in his home whilst receiving optimum care from the nurses. I work in private health care and I can honestly say the Bass Coast Health (BCH) Nursing service is on par with the services and level of care I have seen within my organisation of employment.
I just want to reiterate and sincerely thank Emma and the entire team at BCH district nursing service for providing my Dad with care, compassion, respect and due diligence.
