"Thanks to the quick diagnosis"

About: Rockingham General Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

My child was incredibly ill and the knowledge and professionalism of the nurse, Doctor and other staff was outstanding. Once the Doctor worked out what was wrong, everything was like clockwork.

Went to get X-rays and the Paramedics were waiting for us when we got back to the ED, transferred straight away to another hospital. My child had a blood infection which I’ve been told was quite rare and thanks to the quick diagnoses and fast transfer they are well on the road to recovery.

Outstanding work guys!
