Meet George 👋 George suffered a septic wound and since then has been a much-loved resident at Gannet House. As an avid painter, he finds solace in art and manages to escape pain by picking up a paintbrush and reconnecting with his culture and identity. 🎨🌟

"When I start painting, I get so involved in what I'm doing that I forget about my situation and my pain," George said.

"It's almost like the desire to paint overcomes whatever pain or discomfort I feel that day.

"Getting lost in my art has also been an opportunity to dive deeper into my culture and traditions. I'm Torres Strait Islander and sometimes when I'm painting I regain memories of everything my dad, mother and grandparents taught me when I was young."

One in four Australian adults exceeded the alcohol guideline in 2020-21, meaning 25 per cent of Australians aged 18 years and over either consumed more than ten drinks in a week and/ or consumed five or more drinks on any day at least monthly.

Health worker Leigh from ADIS, our drug and alcohol support line, is eager to encourage Australians to use alcohol responsibly and to seek help if they’re struggling.

“Many people don’t realise that alcohol is a carcinogen and it’s not just heavy drinkers who are at risk. Even moderate drinkers are at an increased risk of a range of cancers," she said.

“If you’re looking at making a change, counting your drinks is a good place to start as it's recommended to consume no more than 10 standard drinks in any one week, and no more than 4 drinks on any one occasion.

If you are having difficulties stopping or reducing use and would like a little extra support to help get you started, you can call ADIS on 1800 177 833.

ADIS is a free 24/7 anonymous help line for people with alcohol and other drug concerns. You can find more information here 👉 adis.health.qld.gov.au/

Metro North can you please tell what the huge increase in ambulance code 1 and the increase in ambulance ramping is due to? Sure is not due to Cov because there are only 50 Cov patients in the whole MNH. Why so many more ambulances and patients in emergency?

After years in the Royal Australian Navy as a marine technician, Jonathon has jumped ship for #STARS and joined the team as a security officer! 🌟

"I think some people think we're here walking around trying to look tough but we just want to make sure everyone's okay," he said.

"My job is to make sure we all get to go home safely at the end of the day, whether it's a patient, a staff member or people visiting, we're here to help everyone."
