DIY Injury Care

The public health information sessions undertaken by the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation in association with the Rotary Club of Botany Bay have to date proved successful and popular with our local residents. The sessions have ranged over a wide range of topics and health issues and the next one will continue in the same vein.

The one scheduled for August 23 is part 2 of a two part series on what to do to treat injuries – hence Do it yourself injuries – Part 2. Questions we all have: Should I put cold water or heat on an injury? Do I put my head back or forward when my nose is bleeding? What do I do if someone is having a seizure? These and other questions will be answered by Dr Michael Golding, Director of Emergency at the Prince of Wales Hospital will take up when he left off with Part 1.

The forthcoming session will give advice and skills on how to treat common household burns, bites, sprains, loss of consciousness, loss of blood and more serious episodes. Dr Golding’s Part 1 was informative and helpful and Part 2 will be more of the same in giving confidence to help other who might be injured.

The session will commence at 6.00pm on August 23 at the Edmund Blacket Function Room in the Prince of Wales Hospital. Access is via Avoca Street. Please reserve your place at Dr Golding’s session by calling Elizabeth on 9382 4263 or via email: If you RSVP to Elizabeth you’ll be in the running for a lucky door prize – and on the night coffee, tea, cakes and sandwiches are free. These are really great sessions and the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation and Rotary Club of Botany Bay are to be congratulated for partnering in presenting them.
