    I was in Wesley Hospital, Brisbane, for a month earlier this year because of sudden acute pancreatitis. The care, consideration, and professionalism from the doctors, nursing staff, physiotherapists, diabetes educator, speech therapist, dietician, other medical professionals, as well as the ancillary staff members were wonderful. I was seriously ill, but thanks to the Wesley I can now lead a good quality life, and will always be grateful to them all.

    I work in a private hospital and have recently been a patient in a private hospital and I couldn't compliment the hospital staff enough. From my admission through to surgery, post op. and discharge, everyone was extremely professional and dealt with me in such a pleasant and caring manner that it felt good to experience what we are often promoting.

    Wesley Hospital in Brisbane and the incredible Specialists and nursing staff have been such a positive role in my life since a serious accident many years ago. The care and outcomes following multiple surgeries have given me my life back and allow me to be a positive and active member of the community. Without this I would certainly have been at least narcotic dependent and at best an amputee. Thanks to private hospital insurance I was able to seek out and find the very best and live a very full and happy life as a result of that. The Wesley must be among the best in the world when it comes to excellence in care for it's patients.

How lucky we are to have state of the art technology and such talented people taking care of us when we are in need.. Thankyou everyone and John Flynn Hospital.

    My husband Brett had a massive heart attack on the 16th, August. Taken by ambulance to John Flynn Hospital he received immediate care and was stented wihin two hours. Medical and Nursing staff were fast, efficient and extremely caring of him. Unfortunately there were complications and he was transferred to ICU where he has been for the last 19 days. The ICU Director, Dr Derek Chu, and the dedicated team of Nurses there have been amazing. I truly believe he would not be alive today if he was in another Hospital. His diagnosis was difficult as it was a rare complication of a heart attack. Dr Derek Chu was the one who diagnosed Brett. I would just like to say a big Thank You to Dr Chu and all the caring Nurses who go beyond there job description to ensure the patients have the best possible outcome.

    Simple day surgery at Armidale Private was actually a delight. Attention to even the simplest detail made my short stay memorable. Thanks

    As a psychiatric patient, I have been turned away from public hospitals on three occasions. I have also heard horror stories about the level of care in public psychiatric wards. So for me, being able to access private psychiatric clinics has been a major part of my recovery. I now stay at the hospital once a month for respite, which is something I would never be able to do in a public hospital. The private clinic has a really high standard of care and very friendly staff who are not rushed or over-worked. It is a haven for me, an "asylum" in the old sense of the word.
