"Fantastic experience at Geraldton Hospital"

About: Geraldton Hospital / Emergency Department

(as a parent/guardian),

Thank you to the team at Geraldton Hospital. My son had 10/10 pain and presented to Emergency for treatment. He was quickly assessed, admitted and had emergency surgery within an hour or so of triage despite it being the middle of the night.

The emergency department team, the surgical team and the paediatric nursing team did a great job of communicating with my young teenage son, especially when he had to have procedures that he was fearful of because they were new.
