Partnership delivers Health for All

The Rio Tinto “Here for Health” initiative has been very successful in helping us build confidence in the hospital and a greater understanding of the services available to you, the Gladstone community.

We worked with the Mater Hospital, GP Superclinic, BITS Medical Centre, private specialists, CQ Medicare Local, Liz Cunningham, Cr Gail Sellers, Ken O’Dowd and The Observer to look at the reality behind the stories.

We worked out how to improve the services available but also how to get the message out that we will never have the services that Rockhampton has.

It is about making our hospital the best it can be without promising things we can’t deliver.  We do want to maximise what we have and that is about making sure we safely deliver to the top of the ability of our services.

This week Jeremy Hastings from Rio Tinto and I are travelling to Sydney to present the story of the Here for Health program.

We will show how it has made a difference to how we are viewed by the community and that a better reputation in the press has allowed us to recruit more and better doctors and other staff to come to Gladstone.

Medical managers from across Australia and New Zealand will hear how Gladstone is delivering Health for All.
