Social worker Jeanne and her team of allied health professionals are always REDy to go, even on the weekends! 🏥 The RED (rapid effective discharge) team is a Caboolture Hospital initiative trialling the effectiveness bringing on a social worker, physio, OT and clinical assistant to work on the weekends so patients can be discharged sooner. 😇

"We don't want patients to basically just be waiting here if they don't need to be in hospital anymore," Jeanne said.

"Allied health professionals don't typically work weekends but we wanted to offer an improved discharge service to our patients so they can go home on the weekend rather than waiting until Monday.

"We also found that it's easier for patient's families to pop to hospital on the weekend when they've got more time on their hands, it's been fantastic so far!"

"I had never been one for the gym and all my life I had abused my body, giving it a hard time with alcohol and cigarettes, that kind of thing. I signed up for the gym and kept feeling better and better. My wife Adrian and I would feel exhausted but fantastic! We committed to a new lifestyle, eating better, getting up and out, I just love it. I'm a bloody gym junkie now!"
