Allied Health professions shine during COVID-19
Published at: 15 May 2020
OUR HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IS EXPERIENCING UNPRECEDENTED TIMES DURING THE GLOBAL COVID-19 PANDEMIC. AT GV HEALTH, SEVERAL ALLIED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS HAVE TURNED THEIR ATTENTION TO PREPARING FOR THE POTENTIAL INCREASE IN HOSPITALISATION NUMBERS AND PATIENTS SUFFERING FROM SEVERE COVID-19 SYMPTOMS.
Recently our allied health professionals have adapted and embraced major change amid extremely challenging circumstances.
It is my privilege to be the Chief Allied Health Officer at GV Health, a role which allows me to work closely with passionate and committed individuals from a wide variety of health professions.
I am immensely proud of the way in which our clinicians have taken up the challenge and worked collaboratively to find solutions to new dilemmas.
Clinicians have explored new ideas, been innovative and initiated change so that our health care teams and services can continue to offer outstanding care to the broader community.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to each and every allied health professional, across our therapy and science disciplines at GV Health, for their commitment and efforts during these unprecedented times.
