ACT surgeries heading to Quangers

By johnboy - 17 August 2012 6

Chief Minister Gallagher has announced ACT surgeons are to start work at Queanbeyan Hospital:

As part of wider cross-border collaboration in health, seven urology operations were performed at Queanbeyan Hospital on 6 August and four gynaecology operations were performed on 9 August.

Fifty operations will be performed at the hospital ahead of a review, which will consider expansion and a potential annual commitment to conduct surgeries at Queanbeyan. There are another two urology ‘lists’ scheduled for 27 and 28 August with a further seven patients booked on each list.

“People in the capital region don’t care about lines on the map, they just want their surgery done,” the Chief Minister said.

“This trial has the potential to be expanded and formalised in the future to see more people have their operations sooner.

I wonder if they’re importing/exporting anaesthetists along with the surgeons… or if the Queanbeyan GP anaesthetists are doing the lists?

Also be fun to see what happens when a complication occurs that means the patient needs something not available at QBN hospital (e.g. imaging, ICU admission, etc.). Admittedly this will be the minority of patients, but…

Let’s try to think of the glass as being closer to half full now, shall we? 😉

Queanbeyan Germs!

You’ll all end up voting ALP – or worse, for the Country Party

Sounds like some common sense at last.

I live in Queanbeyan and I have been treated like a king by the people at TCH sleep studies.

Will the ACT return the favour and stop treating Queanbeyan residents as second class citizens at TCH?

TCH wouldn’t loan me any rehab equipment there after emergency spinal surgery last July because I wasn’t an ACT resident, despite having presented to a NSW hospital (QBN) and having been transferred to TCH for the surgery.
