LETTER TO THE EDITOR MAGNETIC ISLAND HEALTHCARE



Dear Ed,

There is something seriously wrong with the health system on Magnetic island.

People are not seeking health care on Magnetic island. It costs $85.00 to see a doctor.

The clinic provides minimal care. The community know that they can’t see nurses there because they only see emergencies. This information has been disseminated amongst the community.Try getting to see someone after you’ve had major surgery and something is not right. You’re bleeding post op. All on offer is suck it up.

People with disabilities are very not welcome at the clinic. No one in community knows what the clinic is there for anymore.

This is a travesty for the Magnetic Island community. Old people are expected to book a doctors appointment on line.

Sadly no improvement on Health Care on our Island...Like everything else it's now run like a Business with costs to visit a GP too exorbitant for many people. Where did the 'Care Factor' go?
