So proud and lucky to be a patient at the PCH ❤️ very thankful to all who work and have worked there.

Hey QLD Health Metro. Five years ago, one of your oncology surgeons at RBH operated on my Mum. Stage 4c thyroid cancer, 7 year battle. She was told there was no hope, non responsive etc. But your surgeon, Dr Julie Agnew gave it ago and my Mum came home in time for Valentine's day. Cancer free. She is now 5 years in remission. Best present ever. Thanks again.

Since this video was posted it is wonderful to be able to share the news that Angela now has a new heart. The best Valentines day ever. Thank you to all donors and the PCH❤️ For the most wonderful gift of all.

TPCH has the very best and most caring staff. I was sent to see Dr Javorskey in 2010 as I then need a heart transplant they are amazing keeping me alive until I received the gift of heart and lungs in 2011 and I'm still going strong ( touch wood ). Thank you with all I have. 💜💙💚💛❤️

TPCH, best hospital ever. Also, please sign up for organ donation. Why take It to the grave. I've signed up and hope one day I can help others. Until then I can only hope to receive the gift of a new heart myself and watch my amazing daughter (a nurse at TPCH) and grandson grow and live their lives.

Such a great hospital, bloody great staff and doctors

I have been a cardiac outpatient for many years now and would not go to any other hospital. Best team ever.

Hopefully these doctors have read vaccine package inserts. If so, they would understand that adverse reactions LISTED BY MANUFACTURERS include seizures, paralysis and death. Also, they would know that vaccines ARE NOT PLACEBO SAFETY TESTED. READ VACCINE PACKAGE INSERTS FOR DETAILS.
