Hospital built with lamingtons
The Woy Woy Hospital Alliance is committed to the improved provision of medical services available at your hospital on Ocean Beach Rd.
If you haven't noticed it or have never needed it, that's great, but if in the future you might need it, you had better do something about it now.
Our hospital was first considered in 1958 when approximately 17.5 per cent of our population was over 60 years of age.
Now that the hospital is being downgraded, twice that number (35 per cent) of the population is over 60.
In any event, the hospital is intended to cater for the general health needs for all ages.
On average it cost the profit of a dozen lamingtons for each brick.
Thank goodness for the carefully managed card nights, bus trips and raffles, organised by the Ladies Auxiliary, their partners and customers.
Would you believe it?
Our health reps North Sydney Central Coast Health, and sadly some of our sitting political reps, have downgraded the services previously available at Woy Woy by closing the rehabilitation ward, and moved beds and exercise equipment to Kanwal.
A courtesy bus for visitors is provided on three days per week from Woy Woy Hospital to Kanwal and return - of course "wonderful".
It's frustrating to be stuffed around by experts but to be stuffed around by others is degrading.
Our meetings attract 40 to 60, mostly older people, and we need your support.
This is not a lobby for money!
Your support will cost you nothing.
Your lack of support may well cost you your hospital.
Our postal address is PO Box 242 Woy Woy.
