Attached is a video re the impending state of our local Hospital services. If you agree with the sentiment expressed, might we encourage you to distribute this to your own friends and contacts and perhaps encourage them to also send it on. We feel between now and the actual scheduled hospital closure, next Tuesday, is a very fertile time for us all to be doing as much as we can do to draw wider attention to the imminent demise of our local hospital.

In the spirit of our community and its future,

Gavin Butler

NRA President

When I die: the outcome for many without a Mona Vale Hospital after 30 Oct 2018

It is not a matter of IF people will die nor a matter of WHEN people will die; it is a matter of HOW MANY people will die, this year, next year and EVERY year until the Pittwater/Narrabeen region again has the full services of a Level 3 Hospital at Mona Vale. ‘And When I Die’ by Blood, Sweat & Tears 1968

***************************

A reminder about the Silent Protest.

Wednesday 31 October from 8.30 am at South Mona Vale Headland Reserve – next to the hospital – on Coronation Street, Mona Vale.

Out of respect for patients, we will hold a Silent Protest against the closure of emergency, surgery, intensive care, maternity and other acute services at our community hospital.

 

 

 

It will also demonstrate the government’s response to the community’s call to keep Mona Vale Hospital as a fully-functioning Level 3 hospital – namely absolute silence.

We also want to honour the dedication and service to the community of doctors, nurses, other staff and volunteers since the hospital opened in 1964.

Anyone wishing to join the demonstration should meet at South Mona Vale Headland Reserve – next to the hospital – on Coronation Street, on Wednesday 31 October at 8.30am.

Regards
