"Surprised and grateful"

About: Prince of Wales Hospital / Covid Management Centre (CMC)

(as the patient),

Was diagnosed COVID+ in Early July this year, within a couple of hours I was contacted by your COVID-19 Community Management Team through POW Hospital in Randwick, stepped through the process to monitor me, delivered an Oximeter and got me set up for home isolation. This well oiled, knowledgeable, friendly  group of nurses, doctors monitored me twice daily for the duration of my isolation, but was encouraged to call if not well or worried.

I live on my own, this was an enormous comfort to myself and my family. I am in my 60s with co morbidities. Thank you to them all doesn’t seem enough.
