Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : December 17th 2008
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, December 18, 2008 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Don't be caught short on your pills FIONA BRADY Dr Richard Paoloni, of Concord Hospital, urges patients to stock up on pills over Christmas. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP228116 MAKE sure you have enough of your prescription medication to last you over the holiday period, the head of Concord Hospital's emergency department has warned. Dr Richard Paoloni said tra- ditionally many people ended up going to Concord's casualty de- partment for repeat prescriptions over the Christmas break because their GP surgery was closed. ''December is a busy time of the year for people with Christmas shopping and catching up with friends and relatives,'' he said. ''In the rush we often forget important things like making sure we have enough medication to last us through the holidays. ''People seeking repeat prescrip- tions from the emergency depart- ment may experience long waits to see a doctor as patients requiring immediate attention will take pri- ority. ''Try and plan ahead particu- larly if you are going away on holiday and save the emergency departments for emergencies.'' And Dr Paoloni reassured people that emergency depart- ments would be working as nor- mal throughout the holiday period. ''All NSW Emergency Depart- ments are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week all year round and hardworking staff will be ready to help many hundreds of people in need of emergency care over the holiday period,'' he said. ''All life threatening emergency cases will be seen immediately and there will be no changes to emergency surgery.'' ABC Learning Centres are here to stay.
