Some healthy re­spect

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - MAIL BOX -

What an awe­some col­umn by Mary-Rose MacColl (Up­front, July 12-13) about the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of her fam­ily doc­tor. A re­cent trip to a clinic – due to a heart is­sue – dis­gusted us. The doc­tor said he didn't have time to do an ECG. We had al­ready waited over an hour and a half – and we had an ap­point­ment. Our reg­u­lar gen­eral prac­ti­tioner was un­avail­able but he has been car­ing for us for years and in that time has never hur­ried us up. I tell him how won­der­ful he is and wish this tra­di­tion of fam­ily doc­tors would re­turn.

Julie Rose, Bellmere
