Having the Medicentre as an alternative to being triaged at this extraordinarily busy Emergency Department has cost savings measures incalcuable from a Federal funding perspective.

Ive worked as a nurse in the emergency department and i know that it often gets flooded with non emergency cases that should be treated by the medicentre, thats what it was designed for. Instead they now compete with cases in the emergency department that really need to be seen first and slow up treatment to acute and serious chronic patients from a large catchment area.

This is a vital service for the area. Prior to this wait times at the ED were 3 hours plus due to non urgent cases coming into emergency (like splinters, stubbed toes, headaches and period pain to name a few! I know as I've done agency work there) Now these non urgent cases can be flitered through the medi centre easing the burden on a very busy hospital. Before this centre opened, serious cases were rushed out the door (I had a miscarriage which was left untreated here due to an overloaded ED Which led to serious complications. If this medi-centre was around back then I may not have gone through what I did. Please don't close this much needed service, think of people for once instead of numbers.

We need medicentres - else ed is full of unnecessary admissions putting more strain on resources and staff
