Georgina's career dreams were inspired at just 14 years old when she was working at her friend's family pharmacy.

"I thought I wanted to do medicine, then I realised had the most interest and passion in pharmacy. I've only ever worked in Pharmacy!" Georgina said.

Pharmacist Georgina and team leader Stephen work at #TPCH and have collaborated to create a booklet designed to help patients better understand their discharge medication after cardiothoracic surgery, which has landed her a spot as a finalist for the Society of Hospital Pharmacists 'resident of the year' award.

"A patient is often given up to 10 different A4 sheets of paper with information about their medications, so we thought we could create a compact book that a patient could easily follow. Feedback from patients and their respective GPs so far is that they found it very useful and easy to understand."

You’ll be safe in the hands of our Orthopaedic department at #RBWH who make it their mission to fix and heal your broken bones after a motor vehicle or bike accident! 🏍🚗

As a doctor at #RBWH, Tim has seen patients suffer up to 15 different bone fractures from an accident and says repairing them can take up a whole working day. 🦴

“We do a lot of pelvic and spinal injury repairs from traumas that come in caused by motor bikes and cars,” Tim said.

“Every now and then someone comes in with multiple long bone fractures that can take up to eight hours in theatre to repair.

“We might need to do full replacements of bones with implants if they’re too damaged, but if the fracture can be reconstructed, we can use plates and screws or nails to re-align the bones so that it can heal in the correct position.”

If you’d like to be a part of our powerhouse Orthopaedic departments at #MetroNorth, apply to join the #TPCH doctors here today as a PHO: bit.ly/3dcm5ew
