𝐍𝐎𝐎𝐒𝐀 𝐇𝐎𝐒𝐏𝐈𝐓𝐀𝐋 𝐌𝐄𝐄𝐓𝐒 𝐃𝐄𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐕𝐈𝐀 ‘𝐓𝐑𝐀𝐍𝐒𝐈𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐀𝐁𝐋𝐄𝐒’ 👨⚕️✅ Another step in the journey to a much-needed expansion! Thank you to Ramsay Health Care who have worked with the Queensland Health and Noosa Council to facilitate these demountables to triage patients as part of ensuring the Emergency Department operates as efficiently as possible, reducing delays and the need for ambulances to ‘bypass ☹’ or as officially now known ‘load share’ to Nambour or SCUH, which contributes to their ‘ramping’. Gratitude😊to everyone involved including Ramsay CEO Anna & Karl with extra special thanks to the emergency doctors and staff who do an incredible job for our community. Like all that is worthy, it is never as simple as we would like, however we are getting there🙏 The data from this ‘triaging’ is vital as part of the case for a permanent expansion of this private hospital which is contracted by state government to provide $22,600,000 of public services and of this, $7,080,000 is for the Emergency Department. This may sound sufficient, however given the limited capacity, and frustration of residents who are relayed unnecessarily to hospitals further away, we need to know exactly what is required now and into the future. As well to have the longer lease needed from State Government to accommodate this. 👉We will continue to advocate with the new Minister for Health Shannon Fentiman for the required lease extensions which is crucial for our hospital to deliver to our community and reduce impacts to others. By working together, we can ensure this private facility meets the needs of both private and public patients for generations to come🧒👍P.S. A 'Happy Birthday' to Mayor Clare, what a gorgeous cake?!🎂Noosa Community Notice Board Noosa Community Board Noosa Community Hub ... See MoreSee Less

𝐌𝐏 𝐁𝐄𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐄 𝐇𝐎𝐔𝐑𝐒 – 𝐇𝐎𝐖 𝐕𝐄𝐍𝐎𝐌 𝐂𝐀𝐍 𝐂𝐔𝐑𝐄 🕷 with QLD a leader in this space, sharing breakfast with researchers from the Institute for Molecular Bioscience had some ‘creepy’ moments with the Fraser Island K’gari Funnel Web spider showcasing how their venom assists with heart attack and stroke victims! Much was learnt including around endometriosis, bio pesticides and new antibiotics from soil microbes, as well that 100 years ago many in the room would not be here. This as pointed out was due to the average age expectancy back then was 50 years, and how the advent of vaccines and antibiotics via bioscience has contributed to us having a longer shelf life! 😁 Thank you to all presenters for greater insights into what you do, and how you do it!
