LETTER: Nurses appreciated for ‘first-rate care’

I cannot say thank you enough for the first-rate care I received from all those involved.


I would like to publicly acknowledge a group of nurses who perform a number of essential services for citizens in Victoria.

A few months ago due to a post surgical complication I began daily treatment at the Home and Community Care Ambulatory Clinic at Gorge Road Hospital and on weekends at the Cook Street Clinic. All of the nurses who treated me were friendly, professional and dedicated to their work.

A special thank you to Darlene at the Gorge Road Clinic whose knowledge and perseverance greatly hastened my healing time. I would also like to acknowledge Dr. William Orrom, a very kind and gifted surgeon working under difficult circumstances due to lengthy waiting lists.

I cannot say thank you enough for the first-rate care I received from all those involved.

David Mason, Victoria
